Pa. GOP candidate was Democrat until last year
By Aaron Blake - 11/23/09 05:11 PM ET
This probably doesn't help when the GOP base is in the mood it's currently in.
Paul Huber, who is one of a few GOPers looking to take on
Dahlkemper—and has been the most active in speaking out against her
votes in Congress—was registered as a Democrat from 1975-2008,
including during last year’s presidential primary and general
elections, according to Crawford County records. He registered as a
Republican before the primary election earlier this year.
In a statement, Huber said liberals in Congress had prompted his
evolution from conservative Democrat to Republican.
“I had always considered myself a Reagan Democrat—believing in limited
government, greater personal freedom, and a strong national defense,”
Huber said. “I became a Republican because I could no longer stand by
as liberals in Congress like Kathy Dahlkemper supported higher taxes,
more spending, and more regulations that are killing jobs in Northwest
Pennsylvania. I’m a lifelong businessman, not a career politician, and
I believe we need to pursue common-sense conservative policies that
will create jobs and grow the economy, get government spending under
control, and reform health care without nationalizing it.”
It is possible that he has really changed, but I am wary due to
liberals who have switched in the past, only to vote as a liberal once
they get elected. Tea Party leaders have warned us that a lot of
liberals are going to switch, just so they can get elected. Very
devious. I'm going with Steve Fisher because he is part of our Tea
Party group and I am sure of him. Thanks!
