The Democratic delegation from Manatee and Sarasota planned far in advance for their arrival here this weekend to attend their national convention. District 16 voters picked six delegates to attend the Democratic National Convention – four for former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and two for Sen.
Anna Hand of Ellsworth dreamed of making American history as a child. “I walked around telling people I was going to be president,” she said. Hand, a delegate to the Democratic National Convention pledged to Hillary Clinton, is 22. Her dream didn’t start too long ago, but she’s OK letting the title go to another woman.
