‘No family should go broke because Mom got sick’

By Nick Hanek

A ton of speakers so far tonight.

Right now Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is speaking. She just said, “No family should go broke because Mom got sick.”

I’m sitting right behind the Mayor of Columbus and next to several state representatives. Also with three local party volunteers in front of me. We are all doing basically the same thing: enjoying the moment. Music, dancing, cheering.

I can see there’s a section set up next to the main stage. I can recognize a military veteran friend of mine there. I believe that he gets to go up on stage later today approximately nine.

Roland Martin from CNN came up to the row in front of me. He spoke briefly with the Mayor of Columbus. Congressman Tim Ryan is conducting a tv interview about one row away.
