South Carolina Democrat switches to Republican Party: 'I am pro-life and for funding police'

“Some things that I had looked at, I just don’t agree with any longer,” Dorchester County council member Harriet Holman told “Fox & Friends First” on Wednesday. 

“One of the things was that I am just totally pro-life, and I am by for capitalism, I am for funding the police. Those things are what made me make my final decision,” she told host Todd Piro.

The retired U.S. Army lieutenant said she believes Republicans will grow their numbers in African-American communities. 

“We’re born into our families, and we kind of take on the trait of what our families are, and my parents were Democrats,” she explained. 

Holman noted since she retired from the military, she started getting more involved in her community. She saw policies she didn’t agree with and decided to become a Republican, instead.

“It wasn’t an easy decision. I talked to family, I talked to friends, I talked to my constituents, and a lot of my family members are really Republican, as well. So it was not too hard of a transition at all,” she remarked.

The Dorchester County council member added she is “very happy” with her decision.
