Hillary Clinton Campaign Song Contest: The Song in 3rd Place Is...

The third round of rapid-fire voting for our Hillary Campaign Song contest has ended. You all had the chance to vote for one of the three remaining songs, and now it's time to announce which one is being eliminated in third place.

A reminder: the Top 3 songs were "Brave," "Roar" and "Run the World (Girls)."

The song in third place is...Beyonce's "Run the World (Girls)."

To give some stats on how this song fared during its run in the competition, "Run the World (Girls)" didn't start off with a lot of support, ending up in a tie for last place in both Rounds 1 and 2. It started heading up in Round 3 with a third place tie. Then when weekly rapid-fire voting began, the song shot up to first place with 40% of the vote at the Top 5, went down to second place with 30.8% at the Top 4, then dropped enough during Top 3 Week to end up back in last place (probably because support starts shifting to certain songs as others are eliminated). But I have to say, it was a close one this past week. A handful more votes might have given it an edge over another song, so it just barely missed.

If you were supporting "Run the World (Girls)," I hope you'll take a look at the Final 2 songs ("Brave" and "Roar") and choose one of those to support when voting opens again.

But before we wrap up this latest elimination, here are a couple of the comments you sent in for why you wanted "Run the World (Girls)" as the campaign song:

"It's our time to show the world women need equality. Women are powerful. Women make a positive change in America!!"

[Quoting the lyrics] "I worked my 9 to 5, better cut my check...Strong enough to bare the children and get back to business."

In conjunction with the Top 3 voting, you also had the chance to enter a giveaway to win a Hill Yes T-Shirt. As of this writing, I have randomly picked a winner and have notified that person. If you didn't win, don't worry--there will be a brand-new prize during the final week of voting.
