Why the change in parties, Mr. Allbee?

SAXTONS RIVER — Roger Allbee, a lifelong “liberal Republican,” is reported to have changed to the Democratic party because the Republican party “no longer has room” for people like him.

Allbee did not elaborate on why Vermont Republicans have suddenly become so un-liberal. Nor did he mention what he meant by “liberal” Republican.

In the beginning of the article, we find that the Republican Party “does not have a primary, and does not have a candidate for Senate.” Is this a coincidence?

Perhaps this newly minted Democrat can explain his conversion more in detail, and explain why he's not an elephant in donkey's clothing?
