She came to Cleveland uncertain about Trump, She left ready to vote for him

The Washington Post

A 42-year-old Salt Lake County council woman and Utah delegate, Aimee Winder Newton came to Cleveland to see if she could support the Republican party presumptive nominee. She left the convention confident and ready to back her party’s official nominee stage and said he “humbly” accepted the nomination.

Politics has always been a large part of Newton’s life. Newton ran for student body vice president in high school, lead the College Republicans and served on a nine-person county council that had five Republicans and four Democrats.

As the ceremony was ending and balloons and star-shaped confetti came down on the convention floor and Newton took to her cellphone to smile for a selfie. “His brutal honesty might be the thing I hate, but I’m starting to realize it can be the thing I love,” she said. “Sometimes, we just have to compromise.”

She took a deep breath and said: “I’m in.”
