Barack Obama will be the next President of the United States. At the Blue Note, where the Democratic watch party happened, the atmosphere became crazy tonight. “Yes we can, yes we can” While singing, supporters and Obama campaign staff enjoyed the happy end of one year and a half of campaigning.
However, Barack Obama didn’t win Missouri (49,3%) against John McCain (49,4%) with a difference of only 413 votes. It is only the second time for one century that Missouri doesn’t pick the president elected.
On the Republican side, earlier in the afternoon, the College Republican Chairman at Mizzou, Jonathan Ratliff said that “he was confident“. And it turned out that Missouri won’t be a blue State for the next four years.
