Young Delegate

Host Jacki Lyden speaks Tom Santaniello, who at 17, is the youngest delegate attending the Democratic Convention. Santaniello has been involved in politics in his home state of South Carolina since he was an 8th grader, just four years ago. As a class assignment, he had to write to someone famous he admired. While others wrote to sports heroes, he wrote to Sen. Ernest Hollings (D-SC). Since then, he's been volunteering on campaigns, and has attended state party conventions.
