"...to announce his defection PROGRESS in Moving On and ASPIRING to the GOP."

There. That's more like it. There was no editorializing in the article, of course!

"It doesn't make sense to belong to a caucus you vote against 90 percent of the time, and not belong to one you vote with 90 percent of the time."

Some Republicans should ponder this.....

"They ran the House in an orderly fashion, and they came through on many of the issues that were important to me and to them - pro-life, tort reform, ethics," he said. "I know they proved to me that they were good and the team I wanted to be on."

He sounds like a Zell Miller type, not a RINO type.

"In my opinion, it would not be the time to switch parties,"

This classic Democratic response is why they're losing. The Dems are overly concerned with appearances, and not concerned enough with substance.

Most of his supporters will go with him. Everyone is sick of the anti American democRAT party.

"His defection is significant for Democrats since Morris was part of former Democratic House Speaker Terry Coleman's inner circle until Republicans took over the House and the speaker's office last year.

He also was considered Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor's unofficial floor leader in the House and, in that position, was given the rare opportunity to sit in on closed-door meetings of the Senate leadership while lawmakers were in session..."


So he could be BOTH. They might want to be careful with this feller...
