Grandmother's Health Sways Land O' Lakes Voter
A Romney supporter changes his mind after a phone call.
Craig King of Land O' Lakes was going to vote for Gov. Mitt Romney. Then, something changed his mind.
Or rather, someone.
King's grandmother called him recently. Her health is failing, and she's having a hard time paying for her own care, she told him.
Then she asked him to vote for President Barack Obama, because he "could help her more," he said.
"That was the deciding factor," King, 20, said.
The lifelong Land O' Lakes resident brought his daughter, Jollissa, 3, to the Recreation Complex to vote Tuesday afternoon.
And who did she vote for?
"Daddy!" Jollissa said.
