One Big "W"!

After two years of campaigning and six months of hard campaigning for the general election, Tuesday night was one big celebration for Team Todd Young for Congress! With 52% of the vote, Todd Young won Indiana's 9th Congressional District.

After an Election Eve of College Republicans putting up candidate signs at polling locations and around campus, we spent Election Day phone banking on behalf of Todd Young and encouraging registered voters to make it to the polls. Staff, College Republicans and volunteers watched election returns until the race was called at 8:48 and Todd took the stage for a speech that moved us to tears shortly after 9.

Interning on this campaign will go down as one of the most incredible experiences in my undergraduate career. I have so much respect for the hard work and sacrifices Congressman-elect Young, his family and the Todd Young for Congress staff have made for the people of Indiana's 9th District and the values we believe in.
