Dave Bruderly

The Democratic National Convention heads into day two Tuesday, following a series of rousing speeches designed to unify the party after a fractious first day.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders closed out the convention’s first night with a forceful plea for his supporters to get behind nominee Hillary Clinton.

Can the Democrats unite behind the common goal of beating Donald Trump?

Dave Bruderly, Democratic candidate for the District 4 Congressional seat, joins us to discuss the convention and his platform.
