Married couple continues to cast vote for Democratic candidates

Joi Sloan pulled open her heavy coat, suitable for this rainy November morning, revealing a Hillary Clinton pin proudly attached to her shirt.

“Who do you think I voted for?,” she asked.

Patsy and Joi Sloan moved to Bowling Green in 1978 and have been patrons of the 13th Street Club House precinct, the small and intimate polling place where the Sloans voted for Democratic candidates, ever since.

“I was for her (Clinton) before she was,” Patsy said, laughing and pointing at his wife’s pin.

Patsy voted for Clinton when she first ran eight years ago in 2008, and Joi voted for President Barack Obama. Patsy said it created a little rivalry in their household. Joi would send $100 dollar bills to Obama, and Patsy would steal them and send them to Clinton.

“We normally have our fists clenched at each other,” Patsy said as he grabbed Joi’s waist and pulled her in for a kiss.
