Are you having a U.S. election party tonight in Brandon?

The Brandon Sun is looking for some local political junkies who are planning to gather tonight to watch the results come in in what is being billed as one of the most important elections of our lifetime.

If you don't mind having a Sun photographer drop around, give our city desk a call at 204-571-7430 and speak with an editor.

President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney left voters today with a stark choice between their fundamentally different visions for the country’s future, clearly laid out during an aggressive and closely fought battle for the White House.

Both sides cast the Election Day decision as one with far-reaching repercussions for a nation still recovering from the biggest economic downturn since the Great Depression and at odds over how big a role government should play in solving the country’s economic problems.

After months of campaigning and billions of dollars spent in the battle for leadership of the world’s most powerful country, Obama and Romney were in a virtual nationwide tie ahead of Tuesday’s election, an overt symptom of the vast partisan divide separating Americans in the early years of the 21st century.

Obama appeared to have a slight edge, however, in some of the key swing states such as Ohio that do not vote reliably Democratic or Republican. That gives him an easier path to reach the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.

As of 11 a.m., the Sun has found a party to attend. We could perhaps find time for more, so feel free to call.
