Keesha Patterson of Maryland got down on one knee and proposed to her girlfriend Rowan Ha at President Obama’s victory rally Tuesday night in Chicago.

Maryland joined Maine in making history on Election Night by becoming the first states in the nation to back same-sex marriage at the ballot box. Maryland is also the first state in the Southern United States to legalize gay marriage.

Looks like it was a good night for Patterson, her favored President won, Maryland approved same-sex marriage, and Ha said yes.
