Alan Keyes exits GOP!
HAZLETON, Penn. — On Tuesday, former Republican presidential candidate
Alan Keyes officially announced his split with the Republican Party, at
a press conference held in Hazleton, PA.
Saying the Republican Party "has become a dark and confusing place,"
and "there are clear signs that our leaders no longer have an
allegiance to the sovereign people of the United States," Keyes added
that he is considering running for president on the Constitution Party
ticket in the 2008 general election.
The city of Hazleton made news for taking a firm stand against illegal
immigration when it passed the Illegal Immigration Relief Act in 2006.
A life-long Republican, Keyes was a diplomat in the Reagan
administration who served as Assistant Secretary of State for
International Organizations, Ambassador to the United Nations Economic
and Social Council, and staff member of the National Security Council.
