Fonda Davis, Barbara Muench and Deb Brewer remain optimistic as they watch presidential election results coming in.

Davis and Muench are former Republicans who switched to the Democratic party in the 1990s. Although Donald Trump had a sizable lead over Hillary Clinton, they said they believe that she will pull through, as will gubernatorial candidate Jason Koster, and U.S. Senate candidate Jason Kander.
