The popular Texas sheriff is the youngest elected official to reject the Democratic Party and become a Republican

An accomplished and popular Texas sheriff has decided that as a Republican he must continue “Karnes County’s strong tradition of excellent law enforcement.”

Three-time Karnes County Sheriff Dwayne Villanueva announced that he has switched parties and officially repudiates the Democratic Party and what it stands for.

Texas Republican Party Chairman Matt Rinaldi said in a expression“I am proud to welcome Sheriff Villanueva to the Republican Party. With Democrats increasingly failing and crippling law enforcement, it’s no wonder more and more people are turning to the Republican Party.”

Texas scorecard written down that while former President Donald Trump and US Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) secured over 75% of the votes cast in the 2020 Karnes County election, Villanueva still scored about net 66% of the votes as a Democrat by over 30 points.

Last but not least, Villanueva is popular because it is very effective.

After beginning his law enforcement career in 1993 as a prison warden for the Karnes County Sheriff’s Office, he became a police officer and then sheriff of Karnes County.

Villanueva has a strong track record of arrests, having hunted down and incarcerated high-profile criminals, including a serial arsonist responsible for over 50 fires, an escaped inmate, drug dealers, murderers, burglars, and others.

the sheriff specified in his 2020 re-election campaign that his office takes a “proactive” approach to fighting crime, chasing down criminals “rather than waiting for them to commit crimes”.

Carruthers noted that she “came from a Hispanic heritage that was prominently Democratic. The chaos at the border and everything that was going on made me realize I had to switch parties.”

“We’re trying to protect Texas sovereignty. I am a constitutional judge and we stand behind the constitution,” Carruthers added.

Guevara, who has been a Democrat since 1992, said, “I’ve always run to be a Democrat, and this is my first year running as a Republican. I am very grateful to Governor Abbott for everything he has done for Texas and continues to do for Texas, especially with our border crisis.”

Brooks County Sheriff Benny Martinez, another Hispanic Democrat who has fought antitrust and gang activity for years, feels the same way stressed that “the Democratic Party does not represent us.”

“Friends, something is happening in South Texas, and many of us are waking up to the fact that the values ​​of those in Washington, DC, are not our values, not the values ​​of most Texans.” said manure. “The ideology of defunding the police, destroying the oil and gas industry, and the chaos on our border is disastrous for those of us who live here in South Texas.”
