Mississippi transplant reaches goal of attending DNC

A long and winding road to the Democratic convention

One Mississippi Democratic delegate traveled a circuitous route to the convention. Since spring, Jon Delperdang has served as an alternate delegate for the Mississippi Democratic Party. Delperdang’s journey, carrying to Philadelphia the wishes of the 2nd Congressional District Democrats in Mississippi began in Blaine, Minn., a suburb 15 miles north of Minneapolis.
