North Carolina DNC Delegates Front and Center

Tonight in Charlotte is the night President Obama accepts his nomination for a second term in the White House.  State Senator Floyd McKissick of Durham attended his first Democratic National Convention in 1988.  He says this convention is the most exciting and the most important.

McKissick continues, " Well I think everybody understands with Obama’s presidency that there are a lot of issues that are significantly at risk on this occasion.  If Republican control is captured at our national level and also in Congress perhaps here at the state it can result in decades of progress that we’ve made basically being defeated."

Tonight – Lt. Governor Walter Dalton, the state Democratic candidate for governor – is one of several speakers on tap before Mr. Obama takes the stage.
