Former spokesperson for Democratic D.C. Mayor became Republican because of Biden leadership
The former spokesperson for D.C. Democrat Muriel Bowser says he voted for Glenn Youngkin in last month’s Virginia gubernatorial race.
A former spokesperson for Washington, D.C., Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser says he switched political parties after President Biden assumed office and that he voted for Glenn Youngkin in the Republican’s recent, successful bid to become Virginia’s next governor.
Victor Jimenez told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night that until recently he was “lead public information officer at [Bowser’s] office for community affairs” and worked prior to that in a similar role for Latino outreach.
“The reason I switched parties is because of everything that’s going on in the country right now,” Jimenez, an Afro-Dominican immigrant, told Carlson. “We see immigration through the roof right now, and that is affecting a lot of Hispanic families in my home state of Virginia. And those are people who are already struggling with making ends meet.”
Jimenez cited immigration issues as the major reason for leaving the Democratic Party, including what he considers party leaders’ unsuccessful efforts to get control of the record number of migrants attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border.
“If you look at the southern border, we have thousands of people who are just waiting there,” he said. “And I’m not saying we have good people try to come into the country with good intentions, but we also have bad people coming into the country with bad intentions, people with illegal guns and drugs and people who are running from their law enforcement in their own country.
“Being Hispanic and Black, I should be Democrat by default. But I am going against their narrative, and I feel like right now everything is crumbling for the Democrats.”
Jimenez called the defeat of former Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe by Youngkin, a first-time politician and former businessman, “the beginning of the end” for the Democrats and precursor for what could be a very painful 2022 election cycle for the party currently in power in D.C.
Washington is the most heavily Democratic city in America. Democratic presidential candidates routinely collect upwards of 90% of the vote over their Republican opponents. A Republican has not been elected mayor of the District since 1900, when Henry B.F. McFarland became the city’s commissioner under its old style of governance.
