State Convention Part II

On Sunday, members of the State Central Committee picked "at large" delegates to the National Convention.With over 200 people vying for just 41 positions, many of the candidates used gimmicks, like the gentleman above who dressed like Uncle Sam.  This session took about 6 plus hours, but fulfilled the dreams of people like the 5th Districts Jennifer Sutton and Erin Cheuvront.  Other delegates chosen were Karen Russell, the daughter of NBA legend Bill Russell and Griffyn Clay, the nephew of Senator Maria Cantwell.  The Democratic National Convention will take place in Charlotte North Carolina in early September.   President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are the presumed nominees.
