Supporters of President Barack Obama gathered at the watch party at City Grocery on the Square on Tuesday night to watch the election results and cheered as President Obama was declared the winner after he was projected to win the state of Ohio.

Jesse Kelley, a third-year law student, could not contain her enthusiasm.
“I’m so excited,” she said.

Kelley explained why she voted for Obama in the election.

Ole Miss didn’t enter the season with a need at the punter position, but the emergence of senior walk-on Jim Broadway has allowed Ole Miss to attempt to redshirt Tyler Campbell. 
 
Broadway, who walked-on during the spring, took an interesting road to becoming Ole Miss’ starting punter. That journey started at Miami of Ohio in 2008. Broadway punted 17 times in 2009 for the RedHawks.
