Robb Switches from R to D

South Charleston Mayor Richie Robb, a former GOP state committee member and presidential elector, has switched to the Democratic Party. Last year, Robb threatened to be a "faithless elector" and not vote for President Bush in the Electoral College, although Robb did eventually cast his vote correctly. Robb had long been a liberal Republican and made news earlier this year with his anti-Iraq war advocacy.
