(Cross-posted from the Himes for Congress blog.)

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!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
