Voter Voices: Virginia
ALISON STEWART, host:
More voices from voters now, this time from Leesburg, Virginia, about 40 miles northwest of Washington, D.C. NPR producer David Nogueras started his interviews outside the Red Hot & Blue Memphis Pit Bar-B-Que restaurant.
DAVID NOGUERAS: Libby Stevenson(ph) says she'll cast her vote on Tuesday for John McCain, but she was more enthusiastic about his running mate, Sarah Palin.
Ms. LIBBY STEVENSON: I like him, and I love her because she hunts, she fishes. She is just a girl that is a good girl.
NOGUERAS: What's the most important issue to you this election?
Ms. STEVENSON: Health care.
NOGUERAS: Angela Hardy(ph) is on the other side of the parking lot. She's coming out of a Starbucks with a large coffee in her hand. Who are you voting for and why?
Ms. ANGELA HARDY: Barack Obama. And I believe that we do need a change. The past eight years have been extremely traumatic, especially with the war. I had a brother to go overseas, and it was a traumatic experience for me.
NOGUERAS: She added that her home is in foreclosure.
Ms. HARDY: So I know exactly what it's like to lose your home and to not know what to do next.
