Once a Republican, Jim Justice switched his registration to run for West Virginia governor as a Democrat in 2016. Now he's changing parties again. An announcement is expected Thursday night during a rally with President Trump, who won the state by 42 points last November.
Once the change is made, there will be 34 Republican governors, tying a mark set nearly a century ago.
