Three things you can do right now

If you've got any nervous energy, there's plenty you can do right now to have an impact on the results tonight:

1 First, make sure you vote, if you haven't yet. You can find your polling place here:

2 Then, forward this message to everyone you know to make sure they vote, too. And remind your friends in battleground states on Facebook to go vote:

3 Finally, jump on our call tool to reach voters in key states to make sure that they know where they can go vote -- and that they do it:

All of our hard work comes down to what happens right now. Let's not leave anything to chance.

How this happened

--

I'm about to go speak to the crowd here in Chicago, but I wanted to thank you first.

I want you to know that this wasn't fate, and it wasn't an accident. You made this happen.

You organized yourselves block by block. You took ownership of this campaign five and ten dollars at a time. And when it wasn't easy, you pressed forward.

I will spend the rest of my presidency honoring your support, and doing what I can to finish what we started.

But I want you to take real pride, as I do, in how we got the chance in the first place.

Today is the clearest proof yet that, against the odds, ordinary Americans can overcome powerful interests.

There's a lot more work to do.

But for right now: Thank you.

Barack

A big deal, folks (but you need to see this)

What a night!!!

Thanks to your support, we defeated some of the worst right-wing extremists in Congress.

But we're not done yet: We're REALLY close to toppling the King of the House Tea Party caucus, Congressman Allen West.

Democratic candidate Patrick Murphy has a decisive lead but West has a huge war chest ready to challenge the ballots of Florida voters. If we want to win this race, we have to act IMMEDIATELY to make sure every single vote is counted fairly and accurately.

Will you help us knock out the Tea Party? Donate $X or more right now to help us get boots on the ground and protect the vote

Allen West is infamous for his unhinged rants calling President Obama a "low-level socialist agitator" and accusing Democratic members of Congress of being part of the "Communist Party." If he loses, it would be absolutely devastating to the Tea Party movement.

Help us make it happen!
