The Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia is well underway and like Republicans last week in Cleveland, Democrats are doing their best to close a rift in the party.  This week, WYSO continues talking to convention delegates and attendees to get their take on what’s happening.

Susan Eacker, of Hamilton, is a Bernie Sanders delegate from Ohio’s 8th Congressional district. In this interview from Wednesday she says delegates may not come together by the end of the convention. First though - she says it's been a busy week.

Before Tuesday nights delegate vote got underway in Philadelphia, we spoke with Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, a delegate for Hillary Clinton.

Both conventions are somewhat unique from years past. Howard Wilkinson with WVXU Public Radio in Cincinnati has attended many conventions in his 30 years as a reporter in both print and radio. We talked to him him about what’s different this year.
