Texas Democrat Switches to GOP, Cites Border Policy

By    |   Tuesday, 22 August 2023 01:14 PM EDT

A Democrat county attorney in Texas announced she is dumping the party in favor of the GOP.

Fox News reported that Kira Talip Sanchez, who serves as the Kleberg County attorney, confirmed the party switch on Saturday in a statement. It came after she had addressed the Hispanic Republicans of Texas PAC at their 2024 election season kickoff event.

"As County Attorney, I have been proud to work with law enforcement to ensure the safety of the citizens of Kleberg County," Sanchez said. "There is an unprecedented crisis at our southern border. I believe that the GOP’s policies of law and order protecting safety, and backing the blue best align with my values and the values of the citizens of Kleberg County.

"I look forward to working with my colleagues to keep South Texas safe."

Kleberg is in southern Texas and borders the Gulf of Mexico

Hispanic Republicans of Texas President Cassy Garcia welcomed Sanchez to the party.

"Voters and even candidates are switching to the Republican Party because Democrats no longer serve their interests," Garcia said in a statement posted on social media platform X. "The best way to continue bringing folks over to the Republican party is to keep pursuing policies that promote economic prosperity, keep our country safe and support freedom."
