**Rosen speaks with The Flat Hat about Hopkins’s win**
“We got a great amount of momentum, and we ran a great race. We got a considerable amount of the vote. There are clearly differing opinions on campus, and this shows that the voices of many students still haven’t been heard,” he said. “We ran a great race for two transfer students up against incumbents.”
Rosen added that he and running mate Nuñez “absolutely met expectations” and that the results were “not a blowout.”
