Republicans held their breath at Arizona’s GOP headquarters as they awaited results from New Hampshire. When Obama was announced as the winner, the crowd remained quiet.

But Max Frank is still optimistic.

“The feeling of the party is very electric,” Frank said. “People are excited.”

In response to Obama’s win in Utah, Marke Gerberich, also at the state’s Republican headquarters, said he didn’t think it was up for grabs.

“I’m more concerned about the swing states, but every state does get you closer to a win,” Gerberich said.
