The timing couldn't have been better for the Republican National Committee, meeting in Boston, to hear that Bishop Thomas Tobin, the leader of the Providence Catholic Diocese, has officially left the Democratic Party to become a Republican!

The cleric's decision to drop his Democratic affiliation began after the 2012 National Democratic Convention, saying he could not be part of a political party that supports abortion and same-sex marriage in their party platform.

The Bishop made his comments speaking in front of a group of Rhode Island's Young Republicans on Wednesday.
