Conservative radio host Glenn Beck announced on his radio show Wednesday morning that he has officially left the Republican Party.
Beck, whose program appears on TheBlaze.com, said the GOP lost him when they said “they were going to stand against Obamacare and illegal immigration.” Beck added that the party “set us up” and “enough is enough.”
“I’ve made my decision — I’m out. I’m out of the Republican Party. I am not a Republican. I will not give a dime to the Republican Party. I’m out,” Beck said on his program. “I highly recommend — run from the Republican Party. They are not good. And you see it now.”
“All this stuff that they said and they ran and they said they were doing all of these great things and they were going to stand against Obamacare and illegal immigration. They set us up,” Beck said. “They set us up. Enough is enough. They’re torpedoing the Constitution, and they’re doing it knowingly.”
“They’re taking on people like Mike Lee and Ted Cruz and they are torpedoing them knowingly,” Beck continued, “and these guys are standing for the constitution.”
“So I’m done with them,” Beck said. “Four years ago I was with them. Four years ago I said work from the inside: let’s change it. Let’s get new guys in there. I think it’s too late.”
