Robin Williams-Beers, a retired glass engraver who describes herself as a Christian conservative…
…attended a rally for Ohio Gov. John Kasich on the eve of Tuesday’s primary vote in Rockville, Md. She stakes out a front-row seat with her home-made signs, including: “Resist the rage. Research. Think. Vote Kasich.”
In some respects, she might seem a natural supporter for Senator Cruz or even Trump, who has drawn strong support from Christian conservative voters in the South.
But she says that she had health issues at the start of the primary season and used her time in bed to read up on the candidates, including Governor Kasich’s account of the impact that Bible study had on his life…
…in his book, “Every Other Monday.” “I feel like he unifies people and our country desperately needs that right now,” she says.
She showed up at the polls in Kingsville, Md., at 6:30 a.m. to post signs for Kasich, as a volunteer, and took down the signs at 9:30. While at the polling venue, “many people asked me who would be the best vote to stop Trump,” she said in a phone interview after the vote.
Could she bring herself to vote for Trump? “That’s a very difficult thing to say in this point in time,” she says. “I’m waiting and praying. He does not have the magic number yet, and so much has happened in this election that I hope that something will stop him from becoming the nominee.”
“Do the Republicans actually think they can win an election scaring every Hispanic in this country to death?” the other remaining GOP presidential candidate, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, asked during a news conference Friday in Burlingame.
