Joe Scarborough is Quitting the GOP

By Chris Ariens 

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said he is leaving the Republican party. Scarborough was elected to represent Florida’s 1st district four times between 1994 and 2000 and has remained a registered republican since.

During his appearance on the CBS’s Late Show with Stephen Colbert, alongside fiancĂ©e and co-host Mika Brzezinski, Scarborough talked about how the party has shifted since he left Congress more than 15 years ago.

Colbert asked, “But aren’t you a Republican?”

“Um. I am a republican. But I’m not going to be a republican anymore,” Scarborough said. WATCH:
