Cliven Bundy has officially left the Republican party

Rancher Cliven Bundy, who you may remember from American politics circa April 2014, has officially left the Republican Party. The news is unlikely to cause too many sleepless nights at Nevada GOP headquarters.

Bundy and his wife signed new voter registration forms at an event held by the Independent American Party, to which the Bundys now belong. …

The party Bundy joined is something of a success story in Nevada. As of this month, the Independent American Party has 70,258 members, according to the Nevada Secretary of State’s tally of total voters. (Or, I guess, 70,260 now.) That makes it the third-largest political party in the state — although the number of voters registered as “non-partisan” is nearly four times as high.
