Scarborough Bolts GOP


Joe Scarborough, the former Republican congressman who now lives in New Canaan and hosts MSNBC’s Morning Joe, says he is leaving the Republican Party.

Scarborough revealed his decision during the taping of the Colbert Show on CBS Tuesday afternoon. Scarborough says he can no longer stand by President Trump or fellow Republicans who refuse to hold the president accountable for his behavior in office.

Considered by someĀ a possible candidate for statewide office in Connecticut, Scarborough says he intends to register as an independent.
