Election results are in....
When backdated to: late Thursday night? Whenever the elections were held and results were announced, maybe during the 11 pm news?
Who: Hudmel household, interested parties
Where: Hummel Campaign Headquarters: aka, Hudmel living room
What: Reactions to election news
Burt had been trying to keep a lid on his nerves all day, waiting for the election results. They were going to be announced, ironically, during the time that was usually reserved for "Sue's Corner" on the local news.
Thankfully, the press seemed to be convinced that Sue was the front-runner, and that he was the darkest of dark horses in this campaign. There was one lone reporter hanging around outside the house waiting to interview him when the results came in.
Since the campaign had been so small, and so brief, there wasn't really a campaign headquarters. It was just him, and Carole, waiting for the results in the living room, and the boys puttering around doing whatever they were doing, though he was pretty sure they were still up.
When the smarmy anchor announced that the results would be announced after the break, Burt, who'd been sitting in his recliner trying to stay calm, jumped to his feet, suddenly unable to sit still any longer, and began pacing the length of the room, half-listening to Patrick Warburton hawking Hondas. This was it.
