Broad Street in Philadelphia is wild. People cheering out windows, honking horns, a man on a bike just yelled “Joe Biden won!” And 30 year old Alex Puhalla, a Scranton native, is literally doing back flips
People are spontaneously honking, crying, and cheering with strangers, yelling “we won!”
Hundreds of people sprinted to the Convention Center, where they just chanted “U-S-A!” and are now yelling “go home!” to a dozen Trump supporters, some of whom are packing up

People are popping champagne 😂
Liz Kramp brought her 10 year old daughter Vivienne, she said, to experience history — a celebration in part of the first female Vice President. “I feel like a fog is lifted off my soul,” she said. “And finally there will be some ovaries in the Oval Office.”
