Delegates to the Republican and Democratic Conventions

Hosted by

Conventions don't really nominate presidential candidates any more; that happens in state primaries and caucuses. 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.
