Clinton Delegates Get the OK


Florida Democrats sent more than 200 delegates to the National Convention in Denver. A majority of Florida's delegates are pledged to Clinton such as Ana Cruz. But that may change soon. WUSF has been checking in with Cruz and talked with her not long after Clinton's last night.

After working more than a year to win Florida for presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, Cruz admitted it is tough to let go of that dream. The Tampa delegate was 10 feet away as Clinton called on her supporters to not stand on the sidelines but instead work to help elect Barack Obama president.

'Initially, I thought it was going to be a bittersweet evening, but she made it okay for us,' Cruz said.

She added that Clinton delegates are meeting this afternoon with their candidate and will learn more on how the roll call will proceed.
