NC's Youngest Democratic Delegate Says Clinton Must Embrace Party's Young Blood

If you're watching the Democratic National Convention this week, wait for the camera to pan the audience. Pause the TV; now squint hard. On the first floor, just where the seats begin to slope up, is the North Carolina delegation. Sitting in that clump of delegates will be 18-year-old Evan Redmond, the youngest delegate to represent the state at this week's convention.

Redmond is from Belmont, NC. He's an at-large delegate representing North Carolinians who voted for Bernie Sanders in the state's primary, and he's a supporter of Sanders in real life too.

He admits he's disappointed with Sanders losing the nomination to Clinton, but, as he said when we reached him on the floor of the convention just minutes before the roll call Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton may still have a shot at earning his support, and the support of other Bernie fans, but it won't be easy.
