RAYNOR WINS IN LANDSLIDE
® 3,267 votes
Gets 52 percent;
no SBP runoff
BY ELISABETH GILBERT
Flanked by the large entourage
that helped propel her to victory,
J.J. Raynor emerged Tuesday night
with a resounding victory in the
student body president race, gar
nering 52 percent of the vote.
Raynor beat out fellow candi
dates Kristin Hill and Logan Liles.
They earned 22 percent and 26
percent of the vote, respectively. A
candidate must receive a majority
of votes to avoid a runoff election.
“Wow, I'm just so proud of
everyone. You guys are so awe
some,” Raynor told the mob of
staffers embracing her just after
the winners were announced.
“I would never have expected
this,” she said. “I’m an athlete. One
of my superstitions is you always
have to think you're losing ... or
you won't fight hard enough.”
Raynor said it was difficult for
her team to gauge students' reac
tions to their messages during the
campaign but explained her victo
ry, saying, “I think at the end of the
day, hard work speaks for itself."
Amid evening plans of partying
and submitting financial state
ments, Raynor who will take
office April 1 celebrated her
victory but also started to focus
on the more distant future.
Within minutes of the
announcement, she had formed
plans for a meeting with cur
rent Student Body President
Eve Carson and said she plans to
work with the two other candi
dates to implement parts of their
