Like a third of his neighbors in the east German town of Dippoldiswalde, Rene Rothe voted for the far right in last Sunday's election. The biggest concern for the 57-year-old milk farmer was migrants - especially if they drain government funds.
"There's loads of refugees here in the town and I'm wondering what will happen to my pension," he said as he emerged from one of the renovated pastel-colored shops that line Dippoldiswalde's clean cobbled streets.
The town of 14,500 people has taken in 132 asylum seekers, according to the town's official website.
"I have to pay for what the refugees need, and then when their families follow I'll have to pay again won't I?" he said.
Campaigning on a platform to "take your country back", the Alternative for Germany (AfD) won 12.6 percent of the national vote, propelling it into parliament as the third largest party and making it the first far-right group to win seats in the lower house since the 1950s.
