NORTH LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee announced Tuesday morning he is switching from the Democratic to the Republican Party.

In a post on his Twitter account, he said the "Democratic Party is broken."

Today, I switched political parties. The Democratic Party is broken. It’s time to bring people together to get things done. It’s time to stop shouting and start solving problems. pic.twitter.com/PUDf5frc5D
