Clinton speech mentions Gwatney
Hillary Clinton paid tribute to Bill Gwatney in her Democratic National Convention speech.
Clinton called Gwatney “one of our finest young leaders” and that Gwatney “believed with all his heart that America and the South could be and should be Democratic from top to bottom.”
Gwatney’s widow, Rebecca, is watching the speech with former President Bill Clinton in a private box at the convention hall.
Rebecca Gwatney was elected by the state’s Democrats to fill her late husband’s spot at the convention.
Hillary Clinton praised Rebecca Gwatney for traveling to Denver so shortly after Bill Gwatney’s Aug. 13 death.
