Three Republican mayors in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, have switched to the Democratic Party, along with a juvenile court judge and another mayor who is a Republican-turned-independent, now turned Democrat.
Orange Mayor Kathy Mulcahy told the Plain Dealer, "George Bush made me feel embarrassed to be a Republican. I'm a Jewish woman who is pro-choice, anti-gun. I was like a woman in the wrong political body."
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
