The high hopes for a joyful Election night at the Javits Center for Hillary Clinton and her supporters were dashed when Donald Trump stunned pundits and pollsters by coming close to winning the 2016 election, with Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin—all needed for a Clinton victory— in the balance as of 1:30 a.m. in the morning. [UPDATE: At 2 a.m., campaign chair John Podesta appeared, saying that since states were still close to call, they'd have more to save in the more. UPDATE 2:45 a.m.: Clinton called to concede, making him the next president.]

As various states were called for Trump, and many states that Clinton was supposed to win falling in the "too close to call" column, the upbeat mood curdled. Supporters started to cry and Clinton campaign staffers became harder to find.

Update 2 a.m.: Clinton campaign chair John Podesta went to the Javits Center to say that since a few states were too close to call, things would be... paused. "We can wait a little longer, can't we?" he told the crowd, to cheers. "We're not going to have anything more to say tonight."

He urges them to go home and go to sleep, "Your voices and your enthusiasm mean so much to" Clinton and running mate Tim Kaine. After saying the campaign was proud of the supporters, he added, "We are so proud of her. She has done an amazing job and she is not done yet!"
