Hawaii’s House Republican Leader Says She Was Ousted Over Women’s March

State Rep. Beth Fukumoto is exploring a possible switch from the Republican to the Democratic Party in Hawaii, after her stance against President Trump prompted her colleagues to vote her out as their minority leader, a post she had held since her election in 2012.

Fukumoto said her fellow Republicans ousted her “because she participated in the women’s march protesting the Trump presidency,” reports Wayne Yoshioka of member station Hawaii Public Radio.
