Ted Oberg: New York is the real election winner

Ted Oberg breaks down donations coming from Houston

No matter how America votes, NY wins tonight.

For the first time since 1945, a New Yorker will be president-elect of the United States by tomorrow. At least hopefully we will now who won.

Hillary Clinton arrived back here in New York at 3:23 Eastern time after travelling more than 2,000 miles yesterday. She was back up and voting by 8am. It is not a schedule many 69-year-olds regularly maintain.

New Yorkers appear ready to do their part in today's election. Like many in the country, the few we've talked to are ready for it to be over.

Yesterday, we checked out our spot at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. It is a massive structure similar in feel to Houston's George R. Brown Convention Center.

Clinton's party will be inside the building's huge foyer, a glass-ceiling hanging overhead. The symbolism of the possible first woman president speaking under a glass ceiling is significant to this campaign and to a few Clinton volunteers we found nearby.

On election day, I wonder what comes next. There is a lot of work today, but like many of you, I worry that the hangover of a very divisive election will linger even back home where Texas may not be in play on election day but is divided over this election and the issues it laid bare.

Please go vote. It's more than a privilege. It's more than a right. It's our job and one billions of people around the world would love to do.
