A caller into C-SPAN, who identified himself as a lifelong Democrat, said he is voting Republican after watching the GOP convention Monday night.
The caller said he was “Rick” from Loraine, Ohio.
“I’m a lifelong Democrat,” he said on the air. “I just want to say after watching the convention tonight on C-Span here, I am definitely changing my vote to Republican. I’m going to follow the Republican Party now.
“I was really touched by the number of times they used the word ‘God.’ They put God into everything.
“The people on the Democratic side, at their convention — acted like they were pushing God right out of it. And that had a lot to do with changing my mind.”
Steve Guest, the Republicans’ Rapid Response director, tweeted out a video clip of the caller on the C-SPAN broadcast.
President Donald Trump had accused Democrats of taking out “under God” in the pledge of allegiance at their convention.
