Arizona delegates respond to how conventions affected their parties

Cronkite News asked Arizona Democratic and Republican delegates whether their conventions strengthened their parties.

They sent us an audio clip of their thoughts.

Delegates from the Republican Party:

Republican delegates Debbie Lesko and Lori Klein agreed that the RNC unified the party. However, Jarrod White said the convention actually divided the party.

Delegates from the Democratic Party:

Democratic delegates Mikel Weisser, Steven Slugocki and Antoine Coffer all agreed that the DNC unified the party. Coffer said that the convention brought unity not only within the Democratic party but also to the country.
