Louisiana Democratic Lt. Gov. switches to Republican Party

A Louisiana state leader has switched his party affiliation to Republican after watching the Democratic response and handling of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

On Tuesday, Lt. Governor Scott Angelle revealed at the Republican Leadership Summit that he and his wife have left the Democratic Party and joined the GOP.

According to WBRZ:
Angelle told the Summit the energy industry is important to Louisiana and he's "convinced that the national Democrats see the oil and gas companies as bad for America" and that the Democratic Party is "intent on ending an industry."
Angelle has worked closely with Republican Governor Bobby Jindal with the Department of Natural Resources.
