It's unbelieveable. We not only won, but we won big.

For a moment, in the gallery, everyone looked at the House roll call vote. The Senate had done a verbal vote. The House was an electronic vote.

The number 40 came up for the Yea's.

Quick math.

A lot of disbelief... then tears and shouts and people hugging.

It's over.

It's really over.

One down, 49 to go...

I wish I could have stayed for the vote, but I had to get back to work.

I didn't know how much tension I was holding until it was over, and then I was a big spacey puddle for the rest of the day.

I'm so relieved, although I know this won't make the trolls go away; it's a huge step forward.

You know, Molly, I had a woman come up to me after the vote, when I was out in front of the State House. She said, I'm late... what happened? I said, We won.

She started to cry and gave me a big hug.

I didn't know her, but that moment was so powerful. I kept saying, we won, we won...
