One of Calhoun County's most prominent Democrats is now officially a Republican.
Tuesday night the Calhoun County Republican Party accepted Sheriff Larry Amerson's request to join the GOP.
Amerson tells FOX6 he's been frustrated with the Democratic Party's stance on drug crimes. He also cited his Southern Baptist beliefs as being more in line with the GOP.
