Sheriff Changes Political Parties

A local sheriff is changing parties.

Van Zandt County Sheriff "Pat" Burnett announced he will be leaving the Democratic party for the Republican party.

He was elected in 2000 on the Democratic ticket. Burnett told the Tyler Morning Telegraph his views are more in line with Republicans.

Tomorrow afternoon, Burnett will talk to the media more about why he decided to make the switch.
