Gainesville Voters Watch Election Returns at Hippodrome
GAINESVILLE - The Hippodrome State Theatre was full of political junkies Tuesday night, as they cheered on their candidates while election results streamed in. Hundreds of people gathered at the Hipp for a first-of-it's-kind viewing party.
Inside the more then 100-year-old building, five flatscreen TVs and one big projection screen displayed the results live as they were made available. Each TV carried a different channel, allowing those in attendance to chose which political coverage they wanted to watch.
This was the fifth Presidential election watch party that the Hipp has hosted in its long and storied history. Although its still four years away, organizers say they plan to hold another watch party in 2016.
