AUGUSTA State Rep. Stanley Moody of Manchester switched his party affiliation Monday from Republican to Democrat, saying he wants to make more progress on economic development. Moody said he hoped his move will put him in a better position to achieve some of his goals, including a desire to help small businesses succeed.

"Democratic leadership is on board with that and they are in the majority," he said. "I've got to go where the action is and do the best I can."

Moody's switch does not affect the balance of power in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives. The House will now have 81 Democrats, 66 Republicans, three unenrolled and one member of the Green Party. . . .

yee-HAW!! :toast:
as a Maineiac in my heart (though temporarily transplanted elsewhere) this does me proud!

on edit: just found this longer, more detailed version by this same writer:
