First-time Democratic delegate Jerry Sutton started his journey to Denver back in January of 2008. He participated in a congressional district caucus in the 7th District of Ohio.
"Historically, our perception about what goes on at national conventions is viewed through the soda straw of the TV set, and the commentary that goes along with it. So I wanted to get involved," Sutton said.
Sutton was voted into his position at the caucus in January as a pledged delegate for Hillary Clinton. Each candidate for president receives several delegates, according to Sutton.
