Many people believe all that goes on is the TV show. But there's more to being a delegate than just being in the audience for political speeches. We hear from attorneys Julie Biggs, who will be representing California's new, 31st Congressional District at the Republican National Convention , and Hanna Yoon, outgoing president of the Korean-American Democratic Committee and a delegate to the Democratic National Convention , representing California's 34th Congressional District. Note: We'll be in Tampa on Monday for the Republican convention and in Charlotte, North Carolina for the Democratic convention the week after that.
