Inter-Party Strife Continues At Democratic National Convention

Jul 27, 2016

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.
