ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Supporters for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders supporters are sitting side by side, pleasantly chatting with no drama as the Florida Democratic Party picks its final delegates to the national convention in Philadelphia.
The selection process was held Saturday before a fundraising dinner with party leaders. The event that also serves as a rallying cry ahead of the 2016 election.
But neither Clinton nor Sanders has locked up their party’s nomination, so much of the message will generate around building opposition to likely Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
That began early when state Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant kicked off the delegate selection process by calling Trump a “bigoted billionaire” and a bully.
Tant said Trump is the most dangerous presidential nominee her party has ever faced.
