Brad Byrd In-Depth: Dr. Matt Hanka Talks Democratic Convention

Local

The Democratic National Convention got underway on Monday in Philadelphia and got off to a rocky start with Democratic leaders calling for party unity.

Over the weekend, thousands of private Democratic National Committee emails were leaked and posted online, raising questions about whether Democratic Party leaders actively supported Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the primary season.

Outgoing DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced on Sunday that she would resign after the convention. And after continued questions about her leadership, she announced Monday afternoon she was going to reduce her role for the convention.

Brad Byrd sits down with Dr. Matt Hanka, an associate professor of political science at the University of Southern Indiana, to discuss what to expect during this week’s Democratic Convention and the fallout from the leaked DNC emails.
