Last night I was a delegate at the 3rd District Congressional Convention.
Which, for all practical purposes, was Rosa's convention from beginning to end.
I've rarely gone to a political function that contained so much goodwill towards a candidate as this one. The proceedings moved along very smoothly at the Seymour Middle School, and everyone seemed honestly happy to be there.

Third district residents and candidates Kevin Lembo (Lt. Gov.) and Gerry Garcia (Secretary of State) chat during the reception.
I shot about 45 minutes of video featuring the wonderful nominating speeches for Rosa, and her remarks after she accepted the nomination. It will take a day or two to get them online (a totally foreseeable hard disc crash, and an unforeseeable increase in real-life employment will delay them a bit; possibly by Thursday, but I'm not promising anything).
