WVDP Chairwoman Belinda Biafore Statement on Governor Jim Justice’s Party Switch
 
In response to Governor Jim Justice’s party switch West Virginia Democratic Party Chairwoman Belinda Biafore issued the following statement: 

“Jim Justice said he became a Democrat because Democrats care about people. I think we can all guess just who he cares about by his decision today and it’s not the people of West Virginia.

During his campaign for governor, Jim Justice said he would never lie to the public; he said he would never be a politician, and he would definitely be a full-time governor. None of those promises were kept. 

Jim Justice took advantage of Democrats by taking our money and our votes. 

It’s a slap in the face to all of us who believed in what he was promising. 

I never thought I would see Jim Justice be anyone’s puppet.  Shame on him.”
