Party Switchers coming?

Dick Pettys reports that Reps. Richard Royal, Butch Parrish, and Mickey Channell are thinking about jumping ship and running as Republicans this year. Pettyselicits this quote from Rep. Terry Coleman:

Coleman, the former Speaker, said it’s probably up to the party whether the three stay or go.

“The people you’re talking about are conservative Democrats and I think their future depends on the willingness of the Democratic Caucus and the Democratic Party to move more toward the center. If the party does and the caucus does, I think they might stay. And if the party doesn’t and the caucus doesn’t move to the center – where they (Channell, Parrish and Royal) are _ they may leave. It’s just that simple,” Coleman said.
