Convention Notebook Day 3

This article is more than 12 years old.

In his Convention Notebook today, WBUR's Bob Oakes meets a die-hard Hillary Clinton supporter in Denver.

Shawn Robinson is a 25-year old African American from Easthampton Massachusetts. He's a community organizer earning 11 dollars an hour at his job. Robinson beat long-term western Mass State Representative Dan Bosely, by three votes, to be elected a delegate at this year's Democratic National Convention.

Robinson is one of the reasons Clinton won the Massachusetts primary. He hustled votes door to door, held street signs, and cajoled friends and relatives to get out and vote. Despite Hillary Clinton's appeal to her supporters last night, Robinson is sticking by his commitment to her in the "roll call."

He tells Bob Oakes why he's still holding out for Clinton.

This program aired on August 27, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
