Inside one watch party in downtown Fort Worth, people screamed as their supported candidate won the Tarrant County Judge race. At another, a candidate celebrated with family and friends.

At multiple watch parties throughout Tarrant County, guests sought the joy of celebrating a victory — only some achieved it.

Photojournalist Cristian ArguetaSoto and reporters Sandra Sadek and Matthew Sgroi attended the watch parties and bring you the Election Night scenes.
