Boise Mayor Dave Bieter does a radio interview with Geraldo Rivera in this photo taken at the Democratic National Convention yesterday by Idaho Rep. Brian Cronin, D-Boise, who along with Bieter is among Idaho's 31 delegates to the national confab. Cronin said Rivera lobbed mostly “softball” questions at Bieter, along with asking about the city's political climate. “He was basically being the PR guy for the city of Boise,” Cronin said. “I think it actually gave the mayor a chance to talk about some of the great things that are going on in the city.”
Cronin, who's attending his first national party convention, said he's sensing a “tremendous amount of energy and enthusiasm” among the crowd. “For me, I think, it's just a really exciting time to be surrounded by people who in general are like-minded but also serious about elections, and about the people we elect to represent us in government.”
