"I have a feeling that if we had more unenrolled representatives and senators in the country -- including down in Washington -- we'd get a lot more done," Twohey said.
Ed Berry, another Whipps supporter and an engineer in Orange, said the representative's move away from the GOP should help her politically, by shedding "that stigma that sits with the [party], especially in Massachusetts, where it's a predominantly Democratic state."
Former Orange resident Ed Dornig, who has contributed to Whipps' campaign, said the announcement surprised him.
"But if that's what her mission is and if that's a successful direction, I'd go along with it," said Dornig, who now lives in Medfield. "Because, in the current climate of politics, you're either this one or that one -- and everything in-between you're an enemy."
