Another #CCDP2012 Update

So far, here's what's been happening:

Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto (D), Treasurer Kate Marshall (D), and Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Las Vegas) (who's also, of course, now running for US Senate) spoke to the convention floor.

So have State Senator Ruben Kihuen (D-Las Vegas) and likely NV-04 Democratic nominee Steven Horsford.

Both Berkley and Horsford spoke powerfully about protecting Social Security and Medicare, and about rejecting "tea party" extremism. And while the crowd has thinned a little since lunch break, the room here in The Riviera's Convention Center still looks pretty full... And the room is still getting riled up by powerful speeches.

Oh, and by the way, President Obama will be getting all of Clark County's delegates to the state Democratic Convention this June. Surprised, anyone?

Again, I'll have videos from the speeches available later this weekend. Stay tuned for more.
