The View and Voices of Election Night 2018 in El Paso

The distance was several hundred feet, the difference of tens of thousands of votes in the races and the emotions were on opposite sides of the spectrum in Downtown El Paso on Election Night.

While the Veronica Escobar faithful celebrated her victory in the race for the 16th Congressional Seat, just down the block, scores of Beto O’Rourke supporters leaned on each other as their hopes for a victory in the Texas Senate race faded like an opposing team’s home run leaving Southwest University Park, as Senator Ted Cruz claimed victory.

Below are some of the sights and sounds of Tuesday night’s largest parties, thanks to Herald Post staff members Andra Litton, and Andres ‘Ace’ Acosta.  (Also special shoutout to Duke Keith for letting us embed the special he did for 550 KTSA below the gallery)
