FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Donald Trump pulled a win in the Michigan primary Tuesday night.

NewsChannel 15 had a crew in Coldwater, Michigan covering the polls and talked to several people about their candidate of choice.

“I voted for Ted Cruz,” Tina Cornish said. “We just need more God-fearing people in the reins to lead our nation.”

Cornish said her candidate is a far cry from the night’s big winner, Donald Trump.

“I think he’s going to have a big war on his hands if we start deporting people back to their countries,” Cornish said.

Jim Osborn cast his ballot for John Kasich, the candidate that was projected to make a run at Trump in the state adjacent to his own. His reason?

“Because I didn’t want to vote for Trump,” Osborn said.

That may have been one reason, but the other is his son.

“My son lives in Ohio and says Kasich is a pretty good governor there, so I thought if it’s good enough for him being he’s a democrat,” Osborn said.

On the other side of the aisle, Shanna Anderson is backing Bernie Sanders.

“He’s more honest,” Anderson said. “He really researches what he has to say and puts a lot of thought into it. I just think he’s different and I think that’s what we need right now.”

In the end 41 percent of voters who cast their ballot here in Coldwater and Branch County voted for Irv Guck’s man. You guessed it.

“Donald Trump,” Irv Guck said when asked who his candidate is. 

Now the candidates will be looking ahead to other primary elections including votes in Ohio and Florida next week.
