Why Democrats in Western Pennsylvania Are Voting Trump

Via Billy

At a voter-registration event in Washington County, Democrats in the energy industry say the 2016 election is about preserving their way of life.

 Angela LeJohn is 49, has worked at a local energy company for nine years, and loves it. A registered Democrat, she never once voted for a Republican and never expected to entertain such a thought—not even in a local election—until this year.

“The short of it is that I am looking at this election through self-preservation,” she explained. “I love my job, I love that I only live three miles from work, I love that who I work for contributes to a stable life, and I love that my community is holding on because of the trickle effect Lee Supply Company’s impact has on the region.”
