Charlotte, N.C. - With the Democratic National Convention in full swing, twenty-nine members of the Vermont Delegation traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina to nominate President Barack Obama for re-election.
"Our Vermont delegation has hit the ground running here in Charlotte, kicking off the convention week with caucus meetings and a volunteer project sponsored by Craftsman to build a home for a deserving military family,” said Vermont Democratic Party Chair Jake Perkinson. “Our delegates are excited about the many opportunities available at the convention that contribute to moving the country forward, such as a benefit tonight for victims of Hurricane Isaac sponsored by the Louisiana delegation."
Members of the Delegation spent today learning about the history of Charlotte while getting to know fellow peers from other states.
“The people of Charlotte are extremely welcoming. Our Vermont delegates are excited to take part in this historic event,” said VDP Vice-Chair Dottie Deans. “Being able to meet so many people from around the nation who share our Democratic values only strengthens the resolve to re-elect the President.”
