Travis County Democratic Convention
This was easily the most energetic and well attended county convention that I have been to, chiefly due to all of the new people. When the Chris Elliot, the County Chair, asked the people who were attending for the first time to raise their hands, friends near the back of the room said it appeared that more than half of the folks there put up their hands. The award for political theater goes to a female Kuchinich delegate with blue hair who had linked bumper stickers into a sash. The delegates from my precinct graciously elected me as a delegate to the state convention in Houston.
