He has always been a republican. He only ran as a Democrat to win Polk. Waldrop and Culver were both superior candidates. Crawford would not have beaten either if he was running against them as a Republican. If he really wanted to go about it the honest way he would have told everyone before the primary. So, yes, indeed this move was for political advantage.

Both parties are disgraceful. They do not even like themselves. And neither party can find an honest American to run for president. That is because we all know all politicians have completely destroyed the 2 party system. Greed has always destroyed the super powers in this planet's history and America will not be an exception. Daddy Bush and junior and their oil and bank buddies got it started and Obama is finishing it off. Dumbcrats and repubics are all one of a kind this day and age. Using the media and social networks against us all for their own advantage.

I've followed Rep. Crawford's record and have been happy with all the things he has done for us while he has been in office. It didn't matter to me that he WAS Democrat, although I'm Republican. I still will vote for him. His party switch is one more action he is taking that makes me happy. Vote for and Re-elect State Representative Rick Crawford! Look at his record before you vote against him.

Make room for another phony RINO who,s allegiance is to no one but his self and staying in power ,and are willing to do or say (lie) what ever it takes to SUCKER the voters of Polk County into voting for him .
Mr. Crawford knows no shame ,but then what should we expect from his profession (lawyer).
If you vote him back in you deserve what you,ll get !

Looks like you need to get a grip. If a Republican went Democrat they wouldn't get my vote. The Democratic Party has turned it's back on the working man just like they turned their back on God and Israel.
