102-Year Old Woman Reveals Who She Supports for President

Frankie Gause was born on July 16, 1914, six years before women were able to vote. The 102-year old Florida resident has four children and 32 grandchildren. Though she gets around with the assistance of her walking cane, Gause made sure she voted in the presidential election, the 19th such election of her lifetime.

While her story and life experience, having been born before women had the right the vote, might seem like one that would be used in a Hillary Clinton for President commercial, Gause is definitely not “with her.” When she cast her vote for the general election, she did not vote with her body parts and cast a vote for Hillary to “make history” with a first woman president. Gause instead cast her vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump.

Although she described this election cycle as awful, she still exercised her right to vote. In speaking about her early vote for Trump, she described the day she met him at a restaurant years ago.  She said, “We were at his restaurants and he came over and talked with us. He is a very nice man.”

Gause didn’t share when she made the change, but at one point she was a Democrat. She changed her affiliation to Republican when the Democrats no longer stood for what she believed in. She became a Republican because their stance on abortion, family, and marriage is more in line with her personal values.
