At Westminster Presbyterian Church, Roxanne Hoffman and her husband John voted together, like they do every year. But this time, Hoffman says, she cast her ballot for Trump, out of fear.
“I’m afraid for my children. My husband and I are old enough where we’re not going to be affected by it, but my heart cries for my children and my grandchildren,” Hoffman said. “We have five children, and sixteen grandchildren and a great grandchild.”
