A lifelong Democrat gave an NBC reporter some shocking news saying she has reached her limit with the failures of the Dem Party and will vote Republican for the first time in her life. Erica Ingram blamed the out-of-control crime for her Party switch.
“In, Cleveland, I know it’s back-to-back murders, and my son is basically a cold case now,” she said. “It’s crazy. He got shot in the afternoon and somebody got shot that same night. So it’s like it’s continuous, continuous, continuous. And it’s like OK, when are we going to start solving something?”
She also complimented Ohio Republican U.S. Senate candidate J.D. Vance by saying he best reflects her views:
“I can see him having compassion as to where the Democrats don’t have no compassion,” Ingram said.

“They’re, like, weak. They don’t fight hard enough as to where the Republicans get up there and they pull out all stops.”
The reporter Yamiche Alcindor said:
“She believes Democrats are not taking spikes in crimes here, and across the country, seriously enough.”
Brenda Bickerstaff said:
“I’m very disappointed with the Democratic Party.
“When I hear tough on crime, I’m like, OK, they’re going to start violating people’s Fourth Amendment rights.
“That’s what’s going to happen.
“People are going to get pulled over unlawfully for no reason so they can put a case on them or create a case for them. That’s the problem.”
According to NBC:
“In Ohio, several cities are struggling to deal with an increase in homicides.
“Columbus set a record with 175 murders in 2020, according to the city’s police department, only to break that record a year later in 2021 with 204 homicides.
“According to the Cleveland Police Department, the city had 179 murders in 2020, its most ever, and then its second-most in 2021, with 165 murders.
