NOVATO, Calif. (KGO) -- North Bay Republicans watched the race for the White House closely, hoping President Donald Trump keeps his job for four more years. They held a watch party in Novato Tuesday night.
About 100 Donald Trump supporters gathered at a downtown Novato winery to watch election returns roll in on a big screen TV.
Natalie McGuire, a Trump supporter, said, "it's going well, hoping for a good outcome, hoping Trump will win."
Stone Davidson agreed, "I want to gather with like-minded people and celebrate a Trump victory."
There were few masks being worn and little social distancing being observed at the event.
It was sponsored by Moving Marin Right, a group of North Bay Republicans who want to see the president stay in the White House for four more years.
Many said they did not believe polls which showed Trump well behind Joe Biden.
"Not a single person is surprised what's happening here tonight, we didn't believe the polls," said Trump supporter, Melanie Morgan, "I think Trump is going to win tonight."
