Why didn't they just independent, I'm thinking they were wanting to get the republican vote and policies didn't matter.

Yes, this is a very small, rural county. But I still think it's hilarious - every official switched parties. LOL... I guess they're embarassed to be Democrats.
The South used to be full of conservative Democrats but now there is no place in the Democrat party for them.

"Locals said the area has been conservative, and officials' political beliefs are now more aligned with the GOP. They said the Democratic Party no longer represents their agriculture, small businesses and energy interests."

I concur. Now if Joe Manchin in West Virginia would just come over to our side, I might even give him a campaign donation.

It's small town TExas at its finest.
Since small mindedness and sheeple-ness are characteristics of being loyal Republicans, then they will indeed feel more at home with the Republican party.
