Monday, Senator Carlyle announced his evolution to the Republican Party.
The former Democrat senator from Ganado, Arizona made the switch “with a clear mind and heart” because families in rural Arizona are in a crisis with unemployment as high as 80% and infrastructure is “wasting away.” Many native Americans are without electricity and clean running water. Native American teens have the highest high school drop out rate and sadly, one of the highest suicide rates.
Democrats have done nothing to alleviate or fix these problems.
In his video statement, Begay asserts, “change must happen now.”
Senator Begay joined the Republican Party because he sees it as the party of progress and opportunity. Republicans have done more to offer solutions and build a positive future for those Begay represents.
This short video describes Begay’s evolution to the GOP and reinforces the idea that Republicans are about addition and multiplication and not subtraction and division.
Congratulations Senator Carlyle Begay! Welcome to the Republican Party!
