Jennifer The Democrat
Jennifer Eolin grew up in conservative Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. In 1988, she performed in a Bush/Quayle rally at her high school with her marching band. Despite growing up in primarily Republican surroundings, Jennifer became a fan of Hillary during her First Lady days in the White House. "I noticed Hillary wasn't a typical First Lady in that she didn't take on soft topics and do public appearances." Jennifer said. "Today, I find it interesting that Hillary gets flack for 'being raised Republican'. When you're a kid, you don't have a choice. Like Hillary, when I became an adult, I chose to be a Democrat."
While Jennifer is passionate about human rights, and takes great pride in being a registered Democrat, she also wanted to become informed on the issues. "I saw Hillary fighting for universal health care around the time I was struggling to get health care coverage for myself. She was fighting for me, personally! At that point, I did more research on her and saw that she's been fighting for everyone for quite a long time. I was thrilled to have her in my life as a champion. I knew that I'd do whatever it takes to support her in return." Jennifer added, "It's become clear, especially in this election and the GOPs stance, that having a Commander in Chief who is compassionate as well as world savvy is critical. Hillary Rodham Clinton is the woman for this job!"
