2 N.C. Residents To Speak At Democratic Convention
RALEIGH, N.C. —
Two North Carolina residents have speaking roles at the Democratic National Convention.
Pamela Cash-Roper of Pittsboro and Gloria Craven of Eden will speak Tuesday night at the gathering in Denver. Both have struggled with their finances and rising health care costs. They also have introduced presumptive nominee Barack Obama at recent campaign events in North Carolina.
Two Raleigh residents, Brandy Bynum and Adam Terando, were featured Monday night in pre-taped questions that they asked to party leaders. They asked questions about health care and job losses.
Past Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton and Al Gore are also scheduled to speak Tuesday. Obama is scheduled to accept the Democratic nomination on Thursday.
