Update from Chicago
At McCormick Place you can hear cheers from the crowd whenever projections favoring President Obama are displayed onto massive overhead screens throughout the event space.
A documentary that "counts down" the road to the 2012 election which features the President and has appearances by the Vice President and First Lady has been playing intermittently throughout the evening. The film consists of a combination of outtakes from speeches, and interactions with the President's supporters, as well as photo montages and a dramatic musical score.
The crowd and the excitement is growing here as the President's supporters listen to music and await updates on the state of the race.
More to come!
