Caucus Captain JT!
Public attention terrifies Seattle resident, JT, but that didn't stop her from phone banking and becoming a caucus captain at her local precinct.
"Hillary Clinton is my girl. I tried to be like her and push through. In my caucus group there were thirty other Hillary supporters, and I heard similar numbers from other precincts." *
Of course, JT's journey didn't start there. She was 8-years old when Hillary became FLOTUS, and she has forever admired her for being the outspoken and awesome woman Hillary is.
When Hillary came to Seattle in 2014 for her memoir book tour, Hard Choices, JT was there and excited about the historical moment she was giving her daughter.
"I waited in line for four hours with my nine-month old baby. Meeting her was just like the Broad City episode...Hillary exudes power when you're in her presence. I rambled like an idiot. She was so warm and gracious, and zeroed in to talk with me about my daughter. It's true, she really does make you feel like you're the only one in the room. It was really important to me to have my daughter meet Hillary, even though she wouldn't remember. This is something I can tell her about in the future, and she can have a personal connection to the person who will hopefully be our first woman president."
*Author side-note: Unfortunately, Hillary lost the Washington State caucus. However, she did win the unofficial primary held the following month with 53%. While this did not gain her additional delegates, it did prove that primaries produce more votes. 420,000 more votes, in fact. Chances are we won't see another Democratic caucus in future elections, as primaries are proven to be far more inclusive of the voters.
