Pima County (Tucson and surrounding area) voted 52.4% for Obama and 46.4% for McCain. Gambrielle Giffords kept her junior House of Representatives’ seat although the Republican, Tim Bee, fought hard.
I am very hopeful for my country and believe these election results will give many who before felt excluded, hope. There will be many more minority kids saying, “When I grow up I want to be President.” Whether you are Democrat or Republican you should celebrate this historic moment! What a proud day for America! John McCain is congratulated for giving an inspiring departing speech. He certainly will continue to do a great job for Arizona while representing us in the Senate.
