Local interest in Democratic National Convention

READ MORE: Local interest in Democratic National Convention
As the Democratic Convention kicked off last night, people eagerly gathered around their televisions. Adam and Kristen Luikens invited their neighbors over to watch. Kristen is the president of Democratic Women of New Hanover County. She and her husband and neighbors say they plan to watch as much as they can. Kristen is looking for party unity, as well as a big celebration of Obama's candidacy. "A lot of exciting things going on for the people who attend and it's fun to watch. But this year, considering it's the first woman and the first African American, it's really major," said Kristen. The Luikens' neighbor, Tony DeJoseph, is unaffiliated and said he is interested in learning more about the candidates.
