Bubber Epps Switching to GOP

Twiggs County State Rep. James "Bubber" Epps is the latest Georgia legislator to switch from the Democratic to the Republican party.

Speaking by phone from Athens, Epps said Monday that he's joining the Republican caucus in the General Assembly.

He said he'll be better able to help the district, in a house dominated by Republicans and controlled by Republican leadership.

"I think it will give me a seat at the table," he said.

"My major role is to position myself where I can best serve my constituents," he said. "I have to be in the best position possible to bring back what can I can for the district."

Epps noted that only five bills from the Democratic caucus made it through the legislature to become law this year.
