Election 2008: National Conventions
Republicans are leaving St. Paul, Minnesota, following the conclusion of the Republican National Convention. That leaves 60 days for John McCain’s and Barack Obama’s camps to battle it out on the campaign trail. One Republican delegate who is eager for that fight is Alabama State Senator Hank Erwin. He says he’s upbeat, excited and energized about McCain as he returns to Alabama.
With the end of the 2008 Democratic National Convention, political junkies will be turning their eyes from Denver to the Twin Cities, home of this year’s Republican National Convention. But before we leave the mile high city, we’ll check back with State Representative Priscilla Dunn who is a Democratic delegate to the convention. When WBHM Andrew Yeager spoke to her last week she talked about the energy a convention gives a party and a campaign. Energy she says she’s now bringing to Alabama.
Democratic Party officials from Alabama and across the country will assemble Monday in Denver for that party’s national convention. Republicans will do the same a week later in the Twin Cities. At the top of the “to do” list is nominating the presidential candidates, but there’s more to the convention than roll call votes. WBHM’s Andrew Yeager spoke with Republican State Senator Hank Erwin and Democratic State Representative Priscilla Dunn, both delegates to their respective party’s convention, about their plans.
