There is only so much celebration a Democrat can take tonight, apparently.
The official Dem party is at the Crowne Plaza hotel near Reliant Stadium tonight, and it is packed. The ballroom, the hallways, God knows the lines for the cash bar -- it's gotten so crowded that people are leaving to celebrate elsewhere.
There aren't really a whole lot of results from local races, of course. But whenever they come in, the locals won't be packed in like sardines waiting for them.
They're headed out for less-crowded pastures, albeit with a smile on their faces.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
