|It's likely been a heady few days for Nathan Fletcher. The Assemblyman and former Marine announced last week he was leaving the Republican Party and striking out as an independent candidate in his bid for mayor. It was a decision met with scorn by some, who pointed out Fletcher ditched his party only after the local chapter declined to endorse him, a nod Fletcher insists he didn't expect to get.
But others have praised the move as a bold decision that highlights just how partisan politics have become. Fletcher said there's no room for compromise in an increasingly conservative GOP.
