Every four years, the Democratic Party of Virginia gathers to finalize its delegation to the Democratic National Convention. This year’s convention took place at the Hampton Roads Convention Center in Hampton.
With the conclusion of primaries, Virginia Democrats now have a complete slate of candidates on the ballot heading into the November elections. Delegates elected Barack Obama as a candidate for President.
But several Clinton supporters at the convention said they are unlikely to rally behind Obama, a sign that Democrats still face a hurdle in overcoming divisions created during the primaries.
Novelist John Grisham, too, who attended the convention with his wife in support of Clinton, is not ready to back Obama.
“We’re Hillary people,” he said.
