New York City , USA
Election Day

This is my story Ryan Janek Wolowski on being in Times Square New York City witnessing the tension and the joy during the 2008 Presidential election.

*****************

In a huge win, Barack Obama was elected the 44th president of the United States Tuesday. The 47-year-old Illinois senator won a string of battleground states that included Ohio, Florida and Iowa. His Republican opponent John Mccain graciously conceded defeat at a rally in Arizona. Obama delivered his victory speech in Chicago. "Change has come to America," he said. Obama is the first African-American to be nominated by a major American political party for President and the first person of African descent to be elected President of the United States of America.
