Washington delegates prepare for Hillary Clinton speech

This is the final day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, and the focus is on presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Clinton will speak Thursday, and is expected to discuss how to boost the economy, improve national security and unite a divided nation. She will aim to strike a stark contrast with Republican nominee Donald Trump.

Washington state’s Yvette Joseph, a Clinton supporter from Spokane, said the Sanders delegates who dominate the Washington delegation appear to be coming around to supporting Clinton.

Meanwhile, Washington state delegate Jim CastroLang, a Sanders supporter, said President Obama’s speech on Wednesday night showed why the president is so popular.

The breakfast speakers for the Washington delegation Thursday were Michael Dukakis, who ran for president in 1988, and New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio.
