COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Two Democrats in Columbus chose opposing presidential candidates when they cast their votes Tuesday.

Democrat Joseph Baljak crossed party lines to vote for Republican Donald Trump. Joseph Baljak owns a small construction company and said he voted for Trump because of his business background. The 61-year-old Baljak said the country needs a president who will focus on doing the job and not on politics. He said the country needs a change.

Sixty-eight-year-old Jessica Porterfield voted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. She called the long campaign “a nightmare” and worried about what would happen if Trump didn’t win. She said she was concerned about possible riots if Trump lost.
