hey y'all. sorry i couldn't keep up with the live blog yesterday. things just got a little too hectic. all i can say is when they announced on tv that obama was the projected winner for pennsylvania, we all started yelling and screaming and crying and jumping up and down at the office. unbelievable. and i know i shared with you earlier that politico.com article that adam sent me:
"How do you flip 140,000 votes? You start by cutting in places like Lackawanna and Luzerne counties," said the McCain campaign source, referring to Scranton and Wilkes-Barre, the traditionally conservative Democratic population hubs of northeastern Pennsylvania.
well we won luzerne county, 53.7% to 45.2% AND carbon county 50.2% to 47.9% (sabrina is the fo for northern carbon county and we shared the office and i found housing for her volunteers too.)
i can't believe it. it is a mandate. it is a new day.
jeremy and i headed back to new york from hazleton today. anita gave us a ride. we stopped along the way so that he could meet up with a friend who he's hanging out with tonite but he's heading into the city tomorrow or friday so i think we'll catch up then. it was strange to see him go after we'd been spending 24 hours a day together for the past four weeks. saying goodbye to everyone was difficult. more on that later. but for now i'm exhausted.
but i sincerely want to thank everyone for congratulatory and thankful phone calls, emails, and texts. i just feel blessed to have been able to play such an important role in barack's victory and i want to thank you all for your support. i'll say good nite for now, but will follow with another guest post and some closing thoughts in the next couple of days.
i love you all.
