NOT a Career Politician
Joan was a Republican for a long time but has been a “God-driven independent” for 11 years. To be quite honest, she never really understood politics until 2004 when she started getting involved in her non-profit legal work. Back then, she was living in Kansas and saw how the GOP was all about the $$ there.
But after moving her business to Oklahoma in 2013, she saw how different the GOP was there (in KS they “talk the talk,” but in OK they “walk the walk.”) She did support President Obama briefly in 2007 because he offered to do everything he could to get her off the terrorist watch list. However, after he was elected in 2008, he did nothing.
Joan ultimately decided that if Jesus was alive, he wouldn’t be a member of either party, so she has been an Independent ever since. However, she will switch to Republican if elected. Btw due to a few botched-up surgeries and the coronavirus, Joan will mostly be running a social media campaign.
