Just In: High Profile Democrat Leaving Democrat Party

In these couple of weeks, Democrats can’t rise there heads from problems from sexual harassment to criminal charges! Is the Democratic Party Falling Apart?

Now, this!

John Morgan, a high profile Democrat donor and lawyer just dropped a bombshell.

Morgan said not only will he will not be running for governor of Florida, he is leaving the Democratic party.

John Morgan tossed a bomb Friday into the 2018 political landscape, saying in a post-Thanksgiving message he is leaving the Democratic Party, and that Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson should not run for re-election, but rather seek the governor’s mansion so he can leave a “legacy.”

 “I can’t muster enthusiasm for any of today’s politicians,” the prominent trial lawyer and Democratic fundraiser wrote on Twitter. “They are all the same. Both parties. I plan to register as an independent and when I vote, vote for the lesser of two evils.”

Morgan did not close the door on the idea of running for governor himself — a notion supported by many in his party — but said in his message, if he did, he would do so as an independent. In follow-up text messages with POLITICO Florida, Morgan confirmed he was not saying he would not run for governor, “just not as a Dem,” he said.
