Before running for governor, Justice switched from Republican to Democrat in 2015.
"What in the world is wrong with us as people", Justice said. Trump won 77% of West Virginia's Republican primary voters in May.
"I can't help you anymore being a Democrat governor".
"I can tell you, this man and myself are not politicians", Justice said, after being introduced on stage by Trump at the rally in Huntington, W.V. "Do you understand? Large".
Justice noted that he had been in the Oval Office of the White House with Trump two times in the last two weeks, talking to the president about coal and manufacturing jobs. "I know that it takes a long time to get anything done in Trump's situation, but I believe it's going to be very much better after his four years - hopefully his eight years". "I hope to goodness things can work more smoothly". We've done a lot of criticizing of the governor over the past few years, but today is a new day.

While grand juries hear evidence and sometimes decline to hand up indictments, it now looks unlikely that Mueller will "simply submit a report to Congress and allow the political process to digest his findings", Ohlin said. He's totally unsuited for the office and is degrading the office and degrading our country along with it, " he said.
Anti-Trump protesters gathered at the Huntington venue last night chanted, "Jim Justice is a traitor". It would be hard to imagine Justice inserting himself in the Senate race in support of the Republican candidate. As I said, Republican principles are smaller government, more efficient government, lower taxes. "They are trying to cheat you out of the leadership you want with a fake story that is demeaning to all of us and, most impurely, demeaning to our country and demeaning to our Constitution".
Republican Senate President Mitch Carmichael says he's not surprised the governor chose to return to the GOP.
"The Republican Party represents the future of West Virginia". But, West Virginia and rural America has a series of socioeconomic problems - drugs, economy, family breakdown - and they feel like they are being ignored, especially by the national Democratic Party. Any political observer would describe Justice's administration as being anything but "conservative". We ran and gave up a part of our lives.
In a statement after the announcement, Republican Governors Association Chairman Scott Walker, the governor of Wisconsin, welcomed Justice to the party.

Leading the way in the poll was Alabama, followed by Ohio State at No. 2 and Florida State at No. 3. In addition to the Buckeyes, Penn State opens at No. 6, followed by No. 9 MI and No. 10 Wisconsin.
Justice has turned his daily business operations over to his children during his time as governor.
In West Virginia, his jump is another blow for Democrats in a state they once ran without opposition. "We want West Virginia to prosper". "None of those promises were kept". Jim Justice took advantage of Democrats by taking our money and our votes. Former FBI Director James Comey "said three times the President is not under investigation and we have no reason to believe that has changed", it said in a statement provided by spokeswoman Sarah Sanders. I think he's obstructing justice.
"This man is a good man", Justice said. An extra twist of the knife for Democrats: He's doing it alongside President Trump, at a rally in West Virginia. "It's our job to make sure he can't do anything else to damage this state until we can get a conservative into the Governor's Mansion where he refuses to live".
Speaking at the rally, Trump said Justice's switch was proof that his agenda "rises above left or right".
