Dems pour into Grounds

+
Jamie Manley

Hallowed Grounds was filled to the brim Tuesday night for a Democratic viewing party of the election on CNN, one of three viewings in Reynolds that evening.

CNN called the election for President Obama at around 10:20 p.m., to prolonged clapping and chants of “four more years” and “Obama” by those in attendance.

Just after CNN reported that Obama had won Iowa’s six electoral votes, first-year graduate student Hannah Brechka was optimistic.

“I really hope Barack wins,” she said. “I think he might.”

First-year and first-time voter Sophia Johnson chose the coffee shop to view election results for a decidedly collegiate experience “and [to be] in a space with like-minded people…without curbing my enthusiasm.”
