Sharron Angle Left GOP During Reagan Revolution; Was In Three Or Four Parties Overall
We’ve already chronicled the many crazy ideas put forth by Harry Reid’s Republican opponent in the Nevada Senate race. We also mentioned that she was, for six years, a member of the far-right Independent Party who left for the GOP only because that was the only way she could win an election. But what makes it even more damaging to her political fortunes is that Sharron Angle left the Republicans at the height of the Reagan Revolution.
And Angle was a member of three or four political parties since the 1970’s.
Nevada Senate nominee Sharron Angle, a tea party favorite who describes herself as a conservative’s conservative, left the Republican Party at the height of the Reagan revolution and became a Democrat for at least several years, government records show.
Documents on file with the Humboldt County, Nev., clerk’s office show Angle was a registered Republican until June 1984, when she changed her party registration. According to the records, she remained a Democrat at least until March 1988, when she moved from Winnemucca to Tonopah, another rural community in Nye County.
Nevada registration records show that Angle was a member of three, and possibly four, political parties since the 1970s and she might have left the GOP for more than a decade.
In Angle’s home county of Washoe, registrar Daniel Burk said she registered in February 1996 as a member of the conservative Independent American Party. About a year later, in March 1997, she changed her party affiliation to Republican.Click here for reuse options!
