"We know what we want our country to be:" Clinton supporters kick off canvassing in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE -- We're still more than a week away from the Democratic party's National Convention in Philadelphia -- but here in Milwaukee, Hillary Clinton supporters are hitting the streets.

Groups of volunteers canvassed neighborhoods Saturday afternoon, July 16th while others ran the phone bank.

People of all ages and backgrounds lent a hand to the cause.


"I think everybody is really enthusiastic. We know what we want our country to really be and how we want to be represented," said Cheri McGrath, volunteer.

Volunteers for Clinton's campaign weren't the only ones out today.

Members of Citizen Action of Wisconsin and Voces de la Frontera were out canvassing too.
