Jackson Lee at Clinton Event: There May Be an Announcement Tonight

From Choire Sicha at Baruch College:

Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee, a national Clinton campaign co-chair, just talked to a few reporters. The language was extraordinary. “There may be an announcement tonight,” she said. And: “She’s finished on a high note.”

She praised Clinton and Obama’s campaigns in the same terms. (“Two historic figures.”) “She’s been victorious all the way,” she said.

Then everyone ran for the stairway where cell phones work.

Clinton is expected at 9 p.m. Quite possibly later. We think she hasn’t left the house yet.
