Democrat Abruptly Leaves Party To Become A Republican — Now Admits the Ugly Truth

The state House of Representatives in Georgia was rocked by news that a key member of the Democrat Party is switching sides.

State Rep. Mesha Mainor, a Democrat who was elected to represent District 56 in Georgia since 2021, announced her decision to switch her party registration to Republican.

When asked about Democrats becoming enraged over her deicsion, Mainor said, “The most dangerous thing to the Democrat Party is a black person with a mind of their own. So, it wouldn’t surprise me.”

This decision comes following her vocal support for a recent school choice bill supported by Republicans and opposed by Democrats. Now the dark truth is coming out as Mainor says angered Democrats have “harassed and intimated” her over her votes.

“When I decided to stand up on behalf of disadvantaged children in support of school choice, my Democrat colleagues didn’t stand by me,” Mainor explained of her decision to switch political parties.

“They crucified me,” she continued. “When I decided to stand up in support of safe communities and refused to support efforts to defund the police, they didn’t back me. They abandoned me.”

“For far too long, the Democrat Party has gotten away with using and abusing the black community,” she added. “For decades, the Democrat Party has received the support of more than 90% of the black community. And what do we have to show for it? I represent a solidly blue district in the city of Atlanta.”

“This isn’t a political decision for me,” Rep. Mainor said boldly. “It’s a moral one.”

Mainor supported a school choice bill that would have expanded opportunities for students who attend Georgia’s lowest-rated schools.

Despite switching her party registration, Mainor has proven that she’s willing to work across party lines. She says that she has “never hesitated to work across the aisle to deliver results for my community and the people I was elected to represent. And that won’t change.”

Mainor said she’s received encouragement from fellow Republicans. The state representative says it’s “humbling to be embraced for the first time in a long time by individuals who don’t find fault in a black woman having a mind of her own and be willing to buck the party line.”

Mainor said she will continue to focus on education and expanding the Republican majority in the House.

“Education and the importance of school choice has been – and will continue to be – a key focus of mine,” she said. “But outside of education, I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Georgia General Assembly to tackle the most pressing issues facing our state and to help grow the Republican Party, helping us focus not just on preaching to the choir but growing the congregation.”

Mainor accused Democrats of turning against her because she believes his school choice.

“I support school choice, parent rights and opportunities for children to thrive, especially those that are marginalized and tend to fail in school,” Mainor said. “The Democrats at the [Georgia State] Capitol took a hard position and demanded every Democrat vote against children and for the teachers union. I voted yes for parents and yes for children, not failing schools.”

“I have a few colleagues upset with me to the point where they are giving away $1,000 checks to anyone that will run against me,” Mainor continued. “I’m not apologizing because my colleagues don’t like how I vote.”

“It’s ironic. I’ll say every election year, I hear ‘Black Lives Matter.’ But do they? I see every other minority being prioritized except Black children living in poverty that can’t read,” Mainor argued.

“We’ll send $1,000,000 to the border for immigrant services. But Black communities, not even a shout-out. I’m sorry, I don’t agree with this,” she concluded. “I’m not backing down and I’m actually just getting started.”
