Griffith: Party switch 'may have been a mistake, politically'
Here's a nomination for the understatement of the year: Rep. Parker Griffith (R-Ala.), fresh off a GOP primary loss after switching parties, said during a news conference Wednesday that it "may have been a mistake, politically" to leave the Democratic Party.
Still, he said he's got no regrets: "But on principle, it was the right thing to do." He went on to say that he will remain a Republican and that he believes President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D--Calif.) are socialists. He also called for the health-care law to be repealed.
Here's the video from Alabama's WHNT News.
