I wrote yesterday about a few races this year that are very important to me personally.  In a night that had some crushing defeats across the country – these races were thankfully a few, much-needed bright spots.

I wish I could have been in Oakland last night as Jerry Brown took the stage at the Fox Theater, telling the crowd that he was headed back to Sacramento 28 years after leaving the Governor’s office.  It was a stunning comeback and I am humbled to have been a part of it.  It took a great team effort to defeat Meg Whitman despite her spending $163 million against us.

And in Pennsylvania, Tim Holden — whose races I’ve worked on the last 5 cycles and who I am honored to count as a friend — was one of just 10 Democrats in districts carried by John McCain to hold onto their seats.  The other 75% of members in that situation lost last night.  The win was a testament to Tim’s tireless work for the people in his district and the many sleepless nights his team put into the campaign.

Another great win last night was Prop B in Missouri — which will help shut down the inhumane puppy mill industry in that state.  You might ask, who can say no to puppies?  But it was a tough fight, and one that we thankfully won in the end.  I’m happy to congratulate the Humane Society team — who I worked with on this campaign — on a great win.

    Absolutely, Apples app store wins with a mile. Its numerous all sorts of apps vs a rather sad collection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, particularly in the arena of games, but Im not sure Id want to bet around the future if this aspect is essential to you. The iPod is a much better choice if that’s the case.
