My original post was a quick one from my iPhone. Glad I'm home now to show and tell my DU friends about an awesome Democratic night. I waved a sign on a busy street corner this afternoon for hours. Afterwards I met my fellow campaigners at Twains, a brewpub near my home. We had great fun eating and knocking back beers while checking the returns on my iPhone. This is how Jason was keeping up with the numbers. One of us would run up to him and show him on our smartphone. Crazy.

My voice is hoarse from shouting over the crowd and I have my physical tomorrow morning. My doctor will think I am dying. It was worth it!

Rosalynn Carter walks into the pub and straight over to the table where I am sitting with several people. Jason Carter joins her immediately:

Jimmy shows up a few minutes later. I get to meet him, shake his hand (he has a firm and very young grip), and tell him I would vote for him again. He talks proudly to me about his grandson:

President Carter with a cold one:

President Carter, Rosalynn, and Jason:

President Carter and Jason's wife Kate talk as Jason climbs onto a bench:

President Carter, Kate Carter, and Rosalynn look on proudly as Jason makes his victory speech:

State Senator Elect Jason Carter:

I had a great night and met a lot of new Democratic friends.
(and had some damn good beer)
