There's a point to all this. But first, if you didn't see the video, here it is. If you did see the video, it's so worth watching again. (And again.)
(It's worth noting that, what helped too is that Bridget Mary McCormack, the candidate, has an impressive resume all on her own, which everyone was happy to support.)
Anyway, so that's the video. Wonderfully done and wonderful to see. Very belatedly, though, it dawned on me only this morning to wonder something. What in the world happened in that election??
The votes are in.
Bridget Mary McCormack won.
I suspect few candidates for state judge ever got quite the same campaign promotion...
