Two States Now Have Veto-Proof Majorities Due to Party Affiliation Changes

There continues to be more indications Republicans are gaining momentum against Democrats in American politics.

•As Biden destroys the country, more Hispanic and Black voters are moving away from the far-left and radical Democrat party.

•Many RINOS have been exposed and are being ousted.

•Constituents are turning off Big Media.

•America is growing distrustful as we learn who is supporting Ukraine and the kickback mechanisms.

•More citizens are fed up with the Obiden-Soros-New World Order machine.

•After years of Russiagate, impeachment attempts, disturbing DOJ-FBI raids learning who has not been supporting Donald Trump, the tide is changing.

Just last month Republicans gained veto-proof majorities in the Louisiana and North Carolina legislature due to lawmakers who changed their party affiliation from Democrat to Republican.

Both states currently have divided governments where Republicans control the legislature and Democrats control the governorship. The party switches give Republican legislatures the ability to override a veto.

Following the 2022 elections, one party held a veto-proof legislative majority in 27 states. Republicans controlled 18 of those legislatures, while Democrats controlled nine.

Veto-proof majorities exist when one party controls enough members in a chamber to override a gubernatorial veto. When these majorities exist in both chambers, that party can effectively enact legislation without considering the governor.

The party switches bring the Republican supermajority total to 20.

Since 1994, 80 lawmakers have switched from Democrat to Republican, while 23 lawmakers have switched from Republican to Democrat. 

There are 7,386 state legislators in the country. Between 1994 and 2023, an average of seven lawmakers have changed their party affiliation each year.

Following the 2021 elections, there were 24 state legislatures where one party had a veto-proof majority in both chambers—16 controlled by Republicans and eight controlled by Democrats.

Since 2021, Republicans have gained supermajorities in four states (Florida, North Carolina, Montana, and Louisiana), while Democrats have gained a supermajority in one state (Vermont).

In Louisiana and North Carolina, Republicans control the state legislature while Democrats control the governor’s office. Republicans already held veto-proof majorities over Democratic governors in Kansas and Kentucky. Democrats hold veto-proof majorities over a Republican governor in Vermont.

Opposing party legislators hold legislature-wide veto-proof majorities in five states. Overall, 11 states have divided governments—the lowest number in more than three decades.

Republicans gained a veto-proof majority in Louisiana’s Legislature on March 17 when state Rep. Francis Thompson announced he had switched his party registration to Republican, after having first been elected to state government as a Democrat in 1974.

Then, on April 5, North Carolina state Rep. Tricia Cotham, who served as a Democrat in the state House from 2007 to 2017 and was elected to the chamber again in 2022, said she was joining the Republican Party. 

Cotham said, “If you don’t do exactly what the Democrats want you to do they will try to bully you. They will try to cast you aside.”
