About Last Night...

I'm home sick yet again today (yes, I voted) but I thought I'd provide some quick event recaps from yesterday. Please note that we hope to have information and photos from the St. Paul DFA Iraq Forum later in the week.

1) On Blog for America this weekend, we mentioned that Tim Walz (MN-01) had his 3rd debate scheduled for 9/11. BSP has the update, including links to the youtube footage of the debate.

2) The CD5 DFL GOTV Rally and Litdrop went well according to MNBlue:

About 250 people turned out for midnight madness for Keith. A whole mess of folks talked to pump up the crowd. Frank Hornstein, Robert Lilligren, Peggy Flanagan, Patricia Torres Rey, Steve Kelly and R.T. Rybak. Rybak might've had the best line of the night:
"Look around the room tonight, because we're going to make history in electing the first African-American to Congress from Minnesota. There's going to be a whole lot of folks who weren't here that are going to say they were. So take a close look around ... we're the one's who are going to make history."
[Ok, so many of us were there in spirit but we can all do our part today to make history. -eb]

3) DFM wasn't the only political blog to go purple last night. Rew over at Powerliberal has a great recap of the MN Vikings first win.
