[Ed. – The buzz at the news aggregators indicates left-wing media are very excited about this. McKean is signing the death warrant for his political career here, but you do you, big fella.]
Rep. Andy McKean announced he was switching parties during a press conference on Tuesday in which he called the president a “poor example for the nation.”
McKean is the longest-serving Republican in Iowa’s state legislature, according to the Gazette.
“With the 2020 presidential election looming on the horizon, I feel, as a Republican, that I need to be able to support the standard bearer of our party,” McKean said, according to the Iowa Standard. “Unfortunately, that’s something I’m unable to do.”
