A Kansas state senator is switching her party affiliation from Republican to Democrat.
State Sen. Barbara Bollier, who represents Mission Hills in the Kansas City metropolitan area, stated on Wednesday that she no longer sides with the Republican Party’s values, according to reports.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Morally, the party is not going where my compass resides,” Bollier said, according to The Shawnee Mission Post. “I’m looking forward to being in a party that represents the ideals that I do, including Medicaid expansion and funding our K-12 schools.”
Bollier noted that she had been a registered Republican for more than 40 years.

Sen. Bollier has been a longtime friend and ally in the Senate. I applaud her courage. She has always demonstrated a commitment to working across the aisle and standing up for Kansas families. I look forward to working with her as we rebuild our state!https://t.co/27rkFARkB5

“I cannot be complicit in supporting that,” Bollier said, referring to Trump’s presidency. “I can’t call it leadership. I don’t even know what to call him. He is our president, but he is not representing my value system remotely.”https://t.co/sRHZANfgnA #ksleg
