The wait has come to an end for many enthusiastic supports, Barack Obama will be the next President of the United States. He is the first Democrat to win North Carolina since 1976 and Raleigh played a big part in the historic election.
Obama came to the area a couple of times, speaking at the fairgrounds a couple of times, stopping by The Raleigh Times for a PBR, he filled Halifax Court, and Michelle even brought a crowd of 5,000 to NC State’s campus.
Here’s a full recap of election season in Raleigh.
Raleigh celebrated Obama’s victories royally during the NC primary, on election day and will also do so on Inauguration Day. Below is a list of many of the Inauguration Parties in Downtown Raleigh on Tuesday.
