Funny: Both Rossi and Murray are playing "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" tonight. Murray entered to the song here in her downtown Seattle Westin ballroom, after being introduced by Governor Christine Gregoire and Senator Maria Cantwell. "She is a winner and she's gonna win," Cantwell said. "We know, in Washington State, you can have close races. But we also know, when Democrats get out and vote, we can win close races."

The always-on-message Marcelas Owens also introduced Murray, and when she took the podium she cited him—again—as a major inspiration for her campaign to push through health care reform.

The take on the race from Murray?

"We are winning tonight, and we are going to win even bigger tomorrow. We are going to win this race."

She continued: "I'm honored by this vote tonight. Thank you so much to all of you. This race really isn't about me or anyone else that's running, it's really about all of you, it's about Marcelas."
