In an absolutely astounding move, Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson has ditched the Democrats and joined the ranks of the GOP. Citing his triumphs in curbing violent crime, lowering property tax, and fostering a pro-business environment in Dallas, Johnson asserts that he won’t be changing his policies, but swapping his party colors. He firmly believes in the power of fiscal conservatism and law and order, and stresses that these principles should be the bedrock of America’s urban centers. Johnson’s term ends in 2027, and he’s made it clear that he’ll be donning the Republican badge when he steps down.
