My mom is about the happiest woman in Minnesota right now. All the local races she worked on went her way. She called me this morning cause she couldn't sleep, she was so excited.
I watched 4A come in on my computer until 50% had come in and then I couldn't stay awake anymore.
- Reasons to celebrate:
- Barack Obama is the new President.
- John Persell is the new Rep. from 4A.
- Bemidji City Council will not sabotage themselves and Bemidji will move forward with their big plans.
- Gail Jackson beat Sondra Erickson in 16A! No more head-to-toe gold.
- We avoided Mark Olson in the Senate with Lisa Fobbe winning Betsy Wergin's old seat in SD16.
- Bachmann. What?
- Wollschalger, Tschumper and Madore defeated.
- Sterner, Rosenthal, Kath win retiring Republican open seats.
- Erhardt lost as an independent to the Republican in Edina.
- Sales tax amendment for the environment. Did people realize they were voting for a tax increase?
- North Carolina, Indiana, Florida and Virginia went blue. You can believe in people again.
- Kiffmeyer. Hopefully, she won't be as long winded as Mark Olson was. I predict she and Laura Brod will be besties.
- Fraken tie. It won't be over until December.
