    No. I don't understand what you are trying to say.

    Re: Sentence checking

    It might be right in some sort of context. You probably know what you're talking about. We don't. So we can't really comment unless you tell us what it's about.

    Re: Sentence checking

    Now that you have won, my work is over. ?? Was it your job to help him win?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    On the other hand, it could have been the OP's job to challenge 'him', as an opposition candidate in an election, for example. Now that he has won, the OP's job is done.
