Barack Obama Celebrates Landslide Senate Victory

Candidate for the U.S. Senate Barack Obama (D-IL) and his daughter Malia (L), wife Michelle and youngest daughter Sasha (R) celebrate his victory with supporters over Repulican rival Alan Keyes November 2, 2004 in Chicago, Illinois. Obama was expected to easily defeat Keyes in this first ever senate race featuring two major-party African-American candidates.

Obama becomes the third black Senator in the last 150 years. The last African-American to serve in the US Senate was Democrat Carole Moseley Braun, also of Illinois.
