Dave Wedding has twice been elected as sheriff of Vanderburgh County, Indiana as a Democrat, but the longtime law enforcement officer is leaving the Left and embracing the GOP because he says he’s tired of the Democratic Party’s lack of support for police and its embrace of a far-Left agenda.
The sheriff made his party switch official late last week, and pulled no punches in his criticism of the direction that the Democrats have taken in recent years.
Wedding, twice elected sheriff as a Democrat, noted a large U.S. flag nearby and said Democrats “want to burn that thing every day.”
“I’m tired of seeing fires set in our streets,” Wedding said. “I’m tired of people defying God, our church, our police, our government and everything we stand for.
