Waleed Ovase, 18, sitting in the yellow chair, waits for election results with his campaign staff, classmates and friends from his high school.

An 18-year-old senior at Richard Montgomery High School in Rockville, Maryland lost his first political campaign last night, but says he will try again.

Waleed Ovase ran for Rockville city council. He was one of ten candidates seeking four positions. His campaign team was mostly made up of friends and classmates at Montgomery High school. Ovase finished ninth. Disappointment quickly gave way to resolve. Ovase says he will run for council again in two years.
