“Bombshell.” “Shocking. “Stunning.” Those were the words spreading through the halls of the Georgia State Capitol Tuesday when State Rep. Mesha Mainor announced that the Democratic Party of Georgia had abandoned her, and she was switching her party registration to Republican. “Historic” was the word tapped by Georgia GOP Chairman Josh McKoon, as he welcomed her into the state’s Republican Party.

“This is a historic day for Georgia Republicans,” said McKoon. “We are delighted to welcome Rep. Mainor to the Georgia Republican Party and look forward to collaborating with her to advocate on behalf of hard-working Georgians. Our Party stands for empowering parents to be advocates for giving their children the best education possible, that every Georgia deserves to feel safe at home, at work, and in school; and to have the economic opportunity to build better lives.”
