Long-serving Iowa GOP legislator leaves party citing Trump

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The longest serving Republican in the Iowa Legislature announced Tuesday that he’s becoming a Democrat, saying he didn’t want to remain in a party led by President Donald Trump.

Rep. Andy McKean said he made his choice after returning to the Legislature after years away from politics and finding the GOP had changed. Another significant factor, he said, was the presidency of the Republican Trump. He said if the president’s behavior and leadership is the new normal, “I want no part of it.”

“Unacceptable behavior should be called out for what it is and Americans of all parties should insist on something far better in the leader of their country and the free world,” said McKean, 69, a retired attorney from the eastern Iowa city of Anamosa.

He pointed to Trump’s spending decisions, and what McKean called the president’s “erratic, destabilizing foreign policy,” choices regarding the environment and “disregard for the truth.”
