Inside the War Room

Here's an inside look at the drama and excitement of Election Night, from the "war room" of the Milford Democratic HQ. Kerri led a strong ticket, and while we didn't earn a clean sweep, we came damn close, and in the process we took back control of the budget from the Republicans for the first time in twenty years.

(Youtube has been acting a little funny since last night, so if the image doesn't appear below, try again later. They're probably upgrading their software.)

nice video! I was in Groton Dem HQ on Tuesday--some similarities, some differences. Bottom line--it was a good year for Democrats throughout Connecticut. We picked up some seats, but in Groton we had a problem getting candidates this year, and did not run a full slate for town council. It's is a shame, because they would have been elected this time around! Thanks for sharing the view of your HQ, it was fun to watch.

Thanks Mary! Yeah, we did pretty good that night, and the video was a lot of fun to put together. It was kind of sad that Kerri didn't win, but other than that it was a happy night. I'm glad the Dems did well in Groton.

It seems like the entire internet is hicupping tonight. Either that or I have a virus? (I hope not!) I keep getting 404 error pages everywhere.

Good job documenting the excitement (and the let downs) of the Milford campaign.
