Lines grew longer and longer as Super Tuesday voting neared its closing hour yesterday. Most polling locations noticed a notable difference in the amount of Republicans coming out on Tuesday compared to much smaller numbers of Democrats.
“Well, the Republicans just have a lot more candidates to vote for to narrow the field for November,” one White Settlement voter said as she stood in line.
Democrats saw virtually no wait in the late afternoon hours at voting locations in West Point and in White Settlement. Republicans usually waited at least 20 minutes to exercise their right to choose the next leader of our country.
“I’ll wait as long as I have to,” one man said at the Chapel Creek Fellowship Church voting location in West Point. “I came here to make sure my voice is heard, and I’m not leaving until that happens.”
Russ McKee of White Settlement made his voice heard this week at the Trump rally in downtown Fort Worth. He and his wife Kathy heard the Republican candidate speak to a crowd of thousands as Trump made several last minute stops all over Texas.
However, as The Grizzly went to press, voter turnout was showing wins for Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton in Texas.
