The life of the party: Scenes from the DNC
The Democratic Party National Convention in Philadelphia began Monday with Bernie Sanders delegates — angered by the release of hacked emails confirming the national party was undermining Sanders’ presidential bid — booing speakers. Over the last couple of days, delegates say, it has been a rollercoaster of tears, pride, jubilation, protest – and a gradual, if begrudging, coalescence behind Hillary Clinton, the first female presidential nominee of a major party. Colorado’s 78 delegates have been capturing the scene and have shared some of their pictures with The Indy. Take a look-see. It’s the next best thing to being in Philly (and without the lines, the $10 hotdogs, or the drunk delegate behind you who keeps asking you to shoot pics of him in his silly hats).
