Conservative Campaign Chiefs Post Selfie Of Themselves Celebrating

Lynton Crosby and Mark Textor couldn't be happier.

The Conservative party's chief strategist, Lynton Crosby, and his Australian colleague Mark Textor have tweeted this photo.

While results are still continuing to come in, the pair – who co-own the polling and strategy firm Crosby Textor – obviously feel happy enough about how things are going to start celebrating.

Crosby, who was the campaign manager for Boris Johnson's London mayoral campaign, was reportedly paid up to £500,000 to act as David Cameron's chief strategist.

The American campaign guru Jim Messina tweeted another celebratory photo. Messina, who was Obama's 2012 campaign manager, has been serving as a senior Conservative party adviser since 2013.

@LyntonKCrosby and I watching the early results.
