Borderstan Blogger: Military Families and the Election
Borderstanian Diane Tucker has a posting today on The Huffington Post about military families and how they may vote on November 4, “Younger Military Families Closing Ranks Around Obama.” Tucker is blogging for The Huffington Post as part of its “Off the Bus” campaign coverage series:
QUANTICO, Va. — One of the largest U.S. marine bases in the world is located in Quantico, a tidy town with scant election fanfare. Everyone who lives here just assumes Republicans have a lock on the military vote. And so when Obama signs began to appear, tongues began to wag.
“At first I was worried about how my neighbors would view it,” said former marine corporal Dawn Jennings, 31, who bravely put an Obama sign in the center of her front yard. Jennings told OffTheBus that Quantico is the “kind of place where they’ll ask you to remove an Obama bumper sticker from your car.”
