Houston County's slate of elected officials has gone all-Republican.
The last elected Democrat in the county, superior court clerk Carolyn Sullivan,. qualified Wednesday to run instead as a Republican.
Sullivan says she was a lifelong Democrat, but could no longer support the party's agenda or President Obama.
"I'm concerned about the direction the country is going in, and I felt that if I put myself down as a Democrat, I would be supporting that," she said.
She said she was particularly concerned about the nation's inability to reduce its debt.
County GOP chairman Aaron Hufstetler says Houston County was predominately Democrat when he came to town in the 1980s, but the tide has gradually turned.
Hufstetler says all of the party's elected Republicans qualified Wednesday morning, including judges, the tax commissioner, three county commissioners and Sheriff Cullen Talton.
