Caucus-goers make their voices known

The Associated Press

Here are snapshot comments from voters who caucused Tuesday:

•••

Tracy Brigida used to be a Scott Walker backer.

But after the Wisconsin governor dropped out last fall, and Brigida’s husband got laid off from his mining job, Brigida shifted her support.

She cast her ballot on Tuesday for Donald Trump.

“He’s gotten laid off for the second time in three years,” Brigida said as she waited in line with her husband, Michael, and their two children at Desert Oasis High School in Las Vegas.

“I want a businessman to run the biggest business in the world.”

Retired businessman Roy Leuhsenhop is partially blind and had his daughter drop him off on the curb of a high school caucus site in Las Vegas.

He said he came out Tuesday night to vote for someone who could beat Donald Trump.

“He’s a good businessman. I think he’s a spoiled brat,” Leuhsenhop said.

Tiffany Jones, 35, said she’s been supporting Marco Rubio ever since she took a Facebook quiz to find her right candidate several months ago, and scored a 92 percent match with the Florida senator.

“I like his vision,” Jones said as her 3-year-old daughter, Jovi, clung to her at Desert Oasis High School in Las Vegas.

“The biggest appeal is his building a foundation for family.

“I’m trying to keep my hope and faith in humanity,” she quipped. “I just hope that people are level-headed.”
