Bizarre: Democrat Switches to GOP… But Repbulicans Don’t Want Him

The Marshall County Republican Party does not want Marshall County Circuit Judge Howard Hawk as a member of its ranks. But the head of the state GOP says it doesn’t matter, Hawk’s a Republican.

The county Republican Executive Committee voted in a special meeting earlier this week to ask Hawk to remain a Democrat. Hawk announced two weeks ago that he was switching to the Republican Party.

John Ross, executive director of the Alabama Republican Party, said Hawk is now a Republican.

“We don’t prevent someone from switching parties,” Ross told the Tribune. “Anyone has that right. The state party’s executive committee can review a challenge to someone being on the ballot, but now is not the time for that.”

Hawk said he has made his decision and is sticking to it.
