Long day! Earlier today Kurt and I set out to vote. Our poll booths were right next to each other and Kurt did guide me a bit, making sure I wouldn't vote for multiple presidential teams :-)
Today was my first time voting in a presidential election since I became a U.S. citizen back in May. We were both VERY excited!
Tonight, the Un Petit Monde tv crew (KNEM-TV channel 2) was documenting the election results at the DFL headquarters at the Crown Plaza in Downtown St Paul, MN.
Our crew contended with a multitude of news agencies to get the money shot. They miraculously avoided being stamped upon by a crowd of excited supporters and managed to report the news just like the other journalists out there. As the room started heating up, Kurt and I decided to retire our mini crew to prevent any casualties :-)
We also got the opportunity for a few photo ops with Minneapolis Mayor R.T Rybak (before his stage dive), Senator Amy Klobuchar and Congressman Keith Ellison (below).
