Tynio Down but not Out of the Running

Due to the fact that many of the seats in both House and Senate were vacated by Republicans and filled by Democrats on the state level. One Vermont Republican, however, had much larger aspirations than being elected to a state office. Anya Tynio ran her very first campaign in this years election, and she ran for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. 

When asked at the GOP headquarters prior to the poll results how Tynio felt she did in this years election, she had no expression other than that of pride in herself and her team, as well as a sunny outlook on the future regardless of if she won her election or not. "This is my first time running for office, and while I am one of the youngest politicians running for office, I feel that I have a lot to offer and many opinions that have not been explored before due to my age and how I have been brought up in our modern times." Tynio explained, "regardless of how the polls turn out I am happy with what I and my team have accomplished, I did what I wanted to do and I said what I needed to say, ultimately it's up to the voters."

Sadly for Tynio, she lost her election to Peter Welch by a deficit of 117,788 votes. This did not discourage her however, in fact if anything it only strengthened her drive to run again in the next election. "regardless of the poll numbers I believe that I have found my true calling in politics, and even though I may have lost this year, voters can expect to see my name on the ballot in 2020."
