Democrats pick local delegates for national convention

Seven people from Wisconsin's 3rd Congressional District will head to Philadelphia

The Democratic Party is selecting the delegates that will be going to Philadelphia in July for the national convention.

That includes seven delegates from Wisconsin’s 3rd Congressional district.

Xong Xiong is one of the delegates from La Crosse that was chosen Sunday. She’ll be one of four delegates designated for Senator Bernie Sanders, while three others were chosen to support Hillary Clinton.

Xiong says she never got involved in partisan politics until this election cycle. She says she’s excited for the experience.

“I think it will be a great opportunity to go out there and really make some impactful changes, not only in my community but also the larger community,” said Xiong.

The Democratic National Convention will be held from July 25th to July 28th.
