Over 300 people gathered last night at Mt. Aery Baptist Church in Bridgeport, CT to share a meal and experience an historic night together. Minutes before Barack Obama accepted the nomination of the Democratic Party for Presdient, Orange-to-Blue candidate Jim Himes addressed the assembled crowd about this campaign and the need to take our country back.
Here's video of Jim's remarks:
And here are just some of the images from last night (more hopefully coming soon):
It was simply an amazing night. To a person, everyone seemed to leave the room inspired, energized, and ready to work to elect Barack Obama and Jim Himes on Election Day. Thanks to all who showed up, and hope to see many of you in our offices volunteering for change in the next few days and weeks!
