“When Tarie MacMillan switched on her television in August to watch the first Republican presidential debate, she expected to decide which candidate to support.
But MacMillan, a 65-year-old Florida resident, was disappointed. “I looked at the stage and there was nobody out there who I really liked. It just seemed like a showcase for Trump and his ridiculous comments,” she recalled. “It was laughable, and scary, and a real turning point.”
So she decided to back Bernie Sanders, the self-described “Democratic socialist” challenging Hillary Clinton. MacMillan was a lifelong Republican voter until a few weeks ago when she switched her party affiliation to support the Vermont senator in the primary. It will be the first time she’s ever voted for a Democrat.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is increasing the size of his campaign staff and boosting state budgets in an effort to chip away at Hillary Clinton’s southern stronghold, Reuters is reporting.Sanders’s campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, told the news service that the campaign rewrote its budgets last week to add more staff to states that will cast ballots on Super Tuesday.A dozen states will hold votes on March 1 and award delegates on a proportional basis, rather than a winner-take-all system. Weaver said the campaign has calculated that it is worth competing hard in these states, even though Sanders may not perform as well as Clinton.
