DNC 2012: College of Western Idaho Students in Charlotte


Two political science students from the College of Western Idaho attending the Democratic National Convention are about to get front row seats to the party's biggest event of the year.

Sophomore Jordan Brady, studying political science and communication, and Sophomore Karen Nunnally, also studying political science, are at the DNC to represent CWI. The executive director of the DNC chooses a select few interns to attend and support the convention.

Brady lives in Boise and interned for the Idaho State Democratic Convention for a year, while Nunnally is from Nampa. Both will be in attendance as President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden provide remarks to close out the DNC.

Organizers brought the capacity of Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena to 15,000, far fewer than the 74,000-seat football stadium hoped for by the Obama campaign. The venue was rescheduled because of inclement weather.

Brady and Nunnally join 31 Idaho delegates on the final day of the DNC.
