My Mail Chimp postman comes just once a day, a little after midnight, so I’m having to post this with lots of results yet to come in.
But Gwen — the nonvoting mom you met last week — voted!
When I heard that, I had a feeling it could be a good night . . . as so far, despite some real heartbreaks, it’s shaping up to be.
Thank you for voting.
Thank you for volunteering.
Thank you for giving.
And thank you for running, if you were among many wonderful new candidates did.
In case you missed it, here was Captain Sully Sullenberger urging folks to step up. If we did do well yesterday, it was clear-headed, heartfelt letters like his that doubtless helped push a bunch of traditional Republicans to make an exception this year.
