Congratulations Deval Patrick!

The voters of Massachusetts made history yesterday when they elected Deval Patrick as the new governor. He is the first African American governor of the state and only the second ever elected in the country. Congratulations!

What an interesting night for the country. Some huge changes coming.

Just a morning tidbit. Thanks for stopping by.

I was going to say "second since reconstruction," but I guess Pinchback wasn't technically elected to his office in Louisiana.

I wish I could say the voters here had made similar history with the senatorial election. No such luck.

It's an interesting, exciting time here in the Bay State. I guess it is interesting times all the way around...

Reva - sorry that things didn't work out the way you wanted them to in your state. Y'all can move back here, though... :)
