We Did It!

Congratulations! Here's to all of you who volunteered, served as Election Judges, made phone calls, went on trips out of state and stood in long lines to cast your vote! Victory is sweet and came as the result of hard work and a willingness to believe that we can change the world!

We had an 80% voter turn out in the 43rd Ward with 5,000 newly registered voters! We had more election judges who reside in the 43rd Ward serving in our polling places than ever before! We opened a new campaign office that was soon bursting with Obama-mania as we hosted phone banking. And the 5th Congressional District had a higher number of volunteers who went out of town for Obama than anywhere else in the country!

We hoped we could, we believed we could and....We Did It!
