First off, I want to congratulate Senator Walter Dalton on a race well-fought and well-won. I hope everyone here will join me in supporting Walter and all of our great Democratic candidates with the energy and determination I've come to associate with this community.
That's why I also want to congratulate BlueNC today. This site has provided a terrific forum for serious discussion of substantive issues this election season, and has served to energize progressives across our state. Even if your candidate didn't win yesterday, you all played a role in helping to get more Dems to the polls -- and informing them before they got there. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to participate in a live blog and many spirited discussions here. Thank you.
