The Democratic National Convention kicks off tomorrow in Philadelphia. The Wells Fargo Center and the Pennsylvania Convention Center will host more than 4,700 delegates for the four day event. Hillary Clinton is the presumptive nominee, along with her running mate Sen. Tim Kaine, and they’ll be going up against supporters for Sen. Bernie Sanders. Those Sanders supporters are still “feeling the bern” and they’re determined to keep the movement alive which could create some divisive movements on the convention floor.
I sat down with Rudy Miera and Rahul Mukherjee, both Democrat delegates representing Utah but each one supporting a different candidate. Miera for Clinton, Mukherjee for Sanders.
Both Miera and Mukherjee are millennials which is unusual since most in that generation aren’t very involved in politics. So I asked each of them why they got involved. Miera said he remembers watching Hillary run the first time and he was very impressed by her passion and how strong of a woman she is. Mukherjee said he really appreciates Sanders’ policy ideas. He believes a college education should be free for everyone.
