(Politico) – Glenn Beck, the conservative/libertarian radio host and media entrepreneur, said Wednesday he is officially done with the Republican Party.
“I’ve made my decision – I’m out. I’m out of the Republican Party,” Beck said on his radio show. “I am not a Republican; I will not give a dime to the Republican Party. I’m out. I highly recommend – run from the Republican Party. They are not good.”
Beck’s apparent frustration lies with the GOP’s inability to defeat President Obama’s actions on health care and immigration, as well as the establishment wing’s opposition to insurgent senators like Mike Lee and Ted Cruz.
“They ran and they said they were doing all of these great things and they were going to stand against Obamacare and illegal immigration – they set us up,” Beck said.
