PNW represent! I have always loved being from the Pacific Northwest but never have I been more proud than when at 8 p.m., our time, the West Coast portion of the election map went blue and seconds later the election was called for Obama.
I am speechless with relief and gratitude. Sam slept through most of the excitement but we caught up at 3 a.m. as I explained that this is the dawning of a new day for our country, perhaps even for the world.
As far as my campaign goes, still too close to call.
