Jerry Emmett says she will die happy if she lives to see a woman become president.
Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention, she got one step closer to making that dream become a reality. The honorary Arizona delegate cast 51 votes for Hillary Clinton on the convention floor last night, helping Clinton become the first-ever female nominee of a major party in America.
Emmett is 102 years old and told NBC News she remembers when her own mother cast her first ballot when women earned the right to vote in 1920.
According to CBS News, the Democratic officials in Arizona decided to honor Emmett by bringing her to the convention in Philadelphia as an honorary delegate.
She was thrilled to be there, proudly holding up a sign that read, “Centenarian for Hillary.”
If Hillary Clinton wins the election against republican nominee Donald Trump in November, she will be America’s first woman president.
