“I feel like it's the most amazing thing that has happened in my lifetime. When I was listening to his acceptance speech, I was crying like a baby. Being raised on a reservation, this is honestly the first time in my life that I feel proud to be an American.”

“I'm kind of excited and anxious. I hope that he can do the things he promised and bring about the change that people are looking for.”
— Patrick Mushrush, draft specialist, Lawrence
“I'm disappointed. It wasn't surprising that he won - he is a pretty magnetic speaker - but I don't agree with his philosophies. I guess time will tell. Hopefully he's not as morally corrupt as the last Democrat we had in office.”
— Gay Schneider, dental assistant, Lawrence
“I'm pretty anxious to hopefully see things start to change, anxious to see what he's actually going to do.”
— Long Chou, cook, Lawrence
