(AP) Virginia's youngest Democrats are mirroring their elders by splitting in their support of Hillary Rodham Clinton or Barack Obama as their party's pick for president.
Virginia Young Democrats held their annual convention over the weekend at Virginia Tech and passed a resolution calling for party
unity, saying they will support the Democratic presidential nominee.
The group also approved a resolution congratulating Obama for winning Virginia's Democratic primary. Some Clinton supporters thought it implied that the Illinois senator was the reason for Virginia's large turnout in the Democratic primary.
Teenagers, college students and young professionals listened to stump speeches, took part in workshops, managed party business and fraternized with future politicians, strategists and lobbyists.
