10:00 –The hope of a skinny kid with a funny name who believes that America has a place for him, too.

(10:47) Quick Montana update, with 51% of the precincts in: McCulloch 51, Johnson 46; Bullock 55, Fox 45; Juneau 53, Herman 42; Lindeen 56, Grimes 44.

(10:33) The Minneapolis Star Tribune has Al Franken winning the Minnesota Senate race by 1 vote. 1.

(10:20) The Montana races are tightening up a little bit: McCulloch 54-44, Bullock 58-42, Juneau 56-39, Lindeen 58-42. The Children’s Health Initiative is doing very well, though, up 71-29.

(10:17) We face an enormous set of challenges, but it is hard not to be inspired tonight. It’s not just that we have elected someone who embodies what the American Dream has always been about, but that we have chosen a leader who believes that America can live up to its best aspirations, not live down to its worst fears.  It’s time for us all to do what we can to make that a reality.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
