CAMP HILL, Pa. — Sharon Sybrandt thinks Donald Trump is “fat,” ugly,” and a “whack job.” But her disgust with the Republican presidential nominee doesn’t mean she’ll vote against the GOP down ticket — to the relief of her home-state senator, Patrick J. Toomey.
“I will vote Republican for everyone else entirely to counteract Hillary,” said the 72-year-old former insurance regulator. The registered Republican and a resident of this well-to-do suburb of Harrisburg has a deep unease with Democrats — mainly because of their work on health care — and is worried what will happen if they once again control the White House and Congress.
