In a post-election bombshell, a moderate Republican from Mission Hills, Kansas, has defected to the Democrats just ahead of the 2019 legislative session.

Sen. Barbara Bollier tells KCUR the party of Donald Trump frightens her and the last election proves the Kansas GOP belongs to the president.

“I have been struggling for quite some time with the moral direction of the Republican Party,” Bollier says. “I should have done this long ago, intellectually. The party is not supporting a moderate voice anymore. They are working hard to end it.”
