Last night wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. The particular race I was covering was fairly straightforward. The returns came in early enough that I was able to be back at home shortly before 1am.
My favorite moment from last night was when I showed up at the Democratic Election party to interview one of the candidates. I pulled into the parking lot and noticed a very large truck maneuvering to get out of the parking lot. The driver kept backing up and pulling forward in an attempt to squeeze between the cars around him. I started to motion to him that I would help him back out of the space. That's when I noticed who the driver was. It was former Chief of Police and Candidate for District Attorney C.O. Bradford. That's right. I found myself directing traffic for the former police chief.
