Democrats celebrated while Republicans looked to future at CSU watch parties

Long after the results were announced, students still occupied seats in the Braiden Hall common room to discuss the results of the 2012 election.

“I’m pretty pumped over the results,” said junior history major Jesse Hall. “Especially since this is my first presidential election.”

Hall attended a watch party at Braiden that was sponsored by GUIDE (Gaining Understanding Through Involvement, Diversity and Education).

Hall voted for President Obama and said that he supported the president for not only his social policies — such as funding higher education and women’s rights — but also for his economic ones.

“We need to focus on small business, using our own domestic oil and increasing exports,” he said.
