DNC Day 3: First Lady to First Female Nominee

July 27, 2016 at 6:29 pm

Things in Philadelphia are amping up after another round of passionate speeches last night at the Democratic National Convention. With President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden headlining the slew of speakers for tonight, among those names is former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg. We take the time to talk to Barbara Casbar Siperstein, the first elected transgender DNC member, about Hillary’s victory as nominee and what is left to be done.
