With the Electoral College solidifying President-elect Joe Biden‘s victory of the 2020 Presidential Election, a Republican politician has decided to leave the Grand Ole Party (GOP).
According to CNN, Republican Rep. Paul Mitchell of Michigan has left the Republican party because he was fed up with the antics of the outgoing President of the United States, Donald Trump, who continues to try to overturn the current election results.
Mitchell wrote a letter to Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy after requesting that his party affiliation be changed to Independent.
Today I am disaffiliating from the Republican Party.

Courts have heard the “evidence” provided of “fraud” and found it unsubstantiated numerous times. Continuing this circus is just …so damaging … so unproductive … so narcissistic…what about our country? https://t.co/QsA1hLJ2iq
