With regard to Adam Sullivan’s column on April 26 (“Make the GOP great again”) discussing state Rep. Andy McKean changing his party affiliation, I believe he missed the most important point. That Iowa House seat McKean occupies belongs not to him, but to the people of his district.
Certainly a minority, and probably a majority, of his votes in the last election were cast due to him running as a Republican. If he wishes to change parties now, the honorable and ethical thing to do is to resign and run as a Democrat in a replacement election. McKean seems to believe the House seat belongs to him to do with what he wants. This shows a certain arrogance, and a lack of respect for democratic values.
