HANOVER – When it comes to the race for the White House, Chuck and Korey Hamer may be a family divided.
The married couple from Sacramento, California’s in the first-in-the-nation primary state for a month, taking what they describe as a “political vacation,” hitting as many house parties and town halls as possible.
The Hamers discussed their preferences for the Democratic nomination with NH1 News Friday afternoon, at a Hillary Clinton rally at Dartmouth College.
“I’m pretty set on Hillary Clinton at this point,” said Korey Hamer. “I’m very interested in seeing a woman as first president, and I think she’s got a good run at it.”
Husband Chuck Hamer disagreed. He appears to be taken with Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.
“Everything that Bernie says, he just speaks to me,” Hamer said. “I want to want to vote for Hillary and I want her to say things that move me like Bernie does.”
The divide between the Hamers may be a small scale example of the split between many Democrats, as Sanders’ poll numbers and crowd size numbers are on the rise.
Asked about the Sanders rise, Clinton Friday said “I always knew this was going to be competitive.”
