Native Americans Represented at Democratic Convention

Reznet News, Posted: Aug 26, 2008

DENVER Native American leaders are primed to shape the platform and rally the party in support of Sen. Barack Obama at the Democratic Convention in Denver, reports Reznet News. Four Native super delegates are at the convention, along with 143 self-identified Native delegates, compared to 86 in 2004. In a tight race, the Native American vote could prove significant. Estimates are that 80 percent of Native Americans are Democrats, so the leaders hope to convert this solidarity into political advantage. They will be pushing the next President to appoint an Interior Secretary and a top official at the Office of Management and Budget who has an understanding of tribal issues.
