Separated from second place by 337 votes, Jesse Lauchner and

Katie Clausen were announced as the next president and vice

president of the Associated Students of CSU Wednesday night.

“I’m not really sure what I feel right now,” said Clausen, a

sophomore business management student. “I’m ecstatic. It’s by far

the toughest thing I’ve ever done.”

Voter turnout was up from last year with 17.6 percent of

students voting in the election.

“We are very, very excited about that,” said current Vice

President Jessica Chavez. Chavez thanked the candidates for their

help in getting students to vote before announcing the winners.

Coming in sixth place in the election were Todd Ewing and Chris

Fry.

“We are happy with our sixth pace finish,” said Ewing, a

political science senior. “We spent the least amount of money and

got the least amount of votes. It’s proof that you can buy this

election.”

Second place in the election were Cord Brundage and Katie

Clausen.

“It was close,” said Brundage, a senior zoology major. “It was a

good race.”

Lauchner, a junior studying computer information systems, said

he was still surprised about winning.

“Don’t ever doubt two people with a lot of heart,” Lauchner

said.
