Steininger was born in 1913, before the first World War, when women could not vote. During the 2016 campaign, CNN documented Steininger’s efforts to help elect Clinton — the country’s first woman to capture a major political party’s nomination for president.
It is with immense sadness to report that Ruline Steininger, a Bros4Hillary perennial favorite from the campaign season last year, has passed away. Ruline made headlines during the 2016 presidential election for being Hillary Clinton’s oldest campaign supporter. She died on Tuesday night at 103. But Ruline caucused for Hillary in Iowa, determined to live to see the first female president inaugurated.
