Andrew and Steven are in their mid-20s. Their undergraduate studies at the University of Oregon have been interrupted a few times over the years by stints in political campaigns. Celine just turned 18, and will start at the U of O later this month. The trio are just the kind of young voters that the Obama campaign attracted in mighty numbers four years ago, and hopes to attract again.
Not that the Obama campaign has any convincing to do with these three. They’re fierce defenders of the president, and hopeful for what a second term would bring.
On the second day of the convention, we’ll talk to Celine, Andrew, and Steven about what makes them Democrats — and what they see as the future of the party.
We’ll also sit down with Rep. Suzanne Bonamici to ask her how her first term as congresswoman for Oregon’s first district is going.
Here are some of our photos from the first day of the DNC:
