This was the scene at the Riverside around midnight last night when I left; much of the remaining crowd was gathered around a TV, awaiting a Hillary Clinton concession speech that didn’t come, but now is scheduled to happen this morning. As I left, the crowd began chanting, “Lock her up!”

Layne Bangerter, director of the Trump campaign in Idaho, said in a written statement at 3:20 a.m., “We are humbled and proud the American people have risen up in the face of Washington DC. This victory expresses what we as a nation have been feeling for so long: The desire and need for change.”

The New York Times has a transcript and full video of President-elect Trump’s victory speech online here.
