Former Florida Rep. Ana Rivas Logan is abandoning the GOP ship and will register as a Democrat, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
She said, “The GOP of today is not the party I joined. It’s not the party of my parents. It’s a party that has been radicalized and held hostage by a group of extremists.”
Charlie Crist welcomed Logan aboard.

TPM reports, “Logan explained her reasons for leaving the GOP, calling it “a party that attacks women and minorities — and one that asked me, and my former Hispanic Republican colleagues in the Florida legislature, to turn on their own people by supporting extreme anti-immigrant policies.”
My only question is, why did it take so long?
