SACRAMENTO, CA --Thousands of Democrats take to the Sacramento Convention Center for the 2017 California Democratic Convention this weekend.
Convention attendees have a jammed packed weekend of meetings that will help decide priorities of the party and will be electing a new State party leader.
Outgoing chair John Burton lead the party through a host of policy victories like raising state minimum wage to $15 to the expansion of healthcare for all children including undocumented.
The California Democratic Party may be on the verge of electing a progressive candidate, Kimberly Ellis. If she wins the election, Ellis would be the first African-American and only the third woman to hold the post.
