ZAPATA — Irma Alvarez, a longtime Democrat, didn’t vote for president in 2016.
This year, the 80-year-old did. She chose President Donald Trump.
“Always, always, I was part of the old Democratic Party. But the new party has changed a lot,” said Alvarez, a native Spanish speaker who was born in Guerrero, Mexico. “They don’t understand how things are down here. They just don’t understand.”
Florida too, big success.
