Not only did President Barack Obama (D) win Tuesday's election, he also won the votes of thousands of people in Loudoun County and Leesburg.
According to Virginia's State Board of Election, Obama received 81,900 (51.52 percent) of votes in Loudoun County. Gov. Mitt Romney received 74,793 (47.05 percent) of the votes.
Leesburg Patch was curious to see what our readers had to say in downtown Leesburg Wednesday:
"I'm not pleased," said Leesburg resident Kim Fernandez, who voted for presidential candidate Mitt Romney. She said she identified more with the Republican side and hopes the next four years brings something good.
"I hope the economy improves," Fernandez said. "I hope we see more prosperity. I hope we see everybody working together and being more helpful."
Another Leesburg resident, who wished to remain anonymous, said he was, "rooting for the other guy."
"It is what it is," he said, and hopes for a better economy and implemented policies that won't effect his paycheck.
Leesburg resident Pam Jackson said she voted for President Barack Obama and was happy with the results.
"He's up against a lot," Jackson said. "He inherited this mess and I don't think anyone could have cleaned it up in three years. So, I think he's done a good job and I like him."
