PHILADELPHIA — Some Bernie Sanders supporters are wearing glow-in-the-dark shirts, staging a silent protest on the final night of Democrats convention in Philadelphia.
They say it’s a way to remind presidential nominee Hillary Clinton that she hasn’t brought them all on board yet.
For Clinton, the silent protest probably is preferable to the heckling and booing from that marked the early days of the convention.
Sanders delegate Davena Norris says her bright shirt is meant to send a message that more needs to be done to curb the influence of money in politics.
However, Hillary Clinton Campaign Adviser John Podesta says he’s not worried about winning over Bernie Sanders’ supporters.
“Most of them are going to come around,” a hopeful Podesta says.
Podesta says he knows there are some in the Sanders camp who are still “emotional” and wish Clinton didn’t win more votes than the Vermont senator in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
But he says most of Sanders’ supporters are looking at the election as a choice between Clinton and Republican Donald Trump.
Clinton will be addressing the crowd in a historic acceptance speech — the first woman to be nominated by a major party for the president of the United States. Her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, will be introducing her after a performance from singer Katy Perry.AlertMe
