Drifting to the Democrats: Chaffee was Republican from 1999-2007, when he served in the US Senate from Rhode Island. He then became an Independent and ran successfully for Governor in 2010. Now—facing a tough reelection fight and terrible approval ratings—he’s planning on switching fully to the Democratic Party before next year’s vote, sources say. Chafee endorsed Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012; White House Press Secretary Jay Carney says that the president “welcomes Gov. Chafee to the party.” Even though Chafee technically left the GOP in 2007, you can bet national Democrats will point to his most recent switcharoo as evidence that the GOP is becoming too extreme for its more moderate members. (Photo credit: AP) source
