The Democratic National Convention opened Monday amid a cloud of controversy and massive protests by die hard Bernie Sanders supporters.
Here are five tidbits about the Oregon delegation, many of whom used crowdfunding to pay the average $3,000 per person cost to participate. Sanders' delegates have a website dedicated to fundraising, AdoptABernieDelegate. Hillary Clinton delegates seem to be on their own. Many turned to GoFundMe.
1. Delegate split
Oregon sent 74 delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. The state's delegates are split in favor of Sen. Bernie Sanders. Thirty-nine are assigned to the Vermont senator, while only 29 are assigned to Secretary Hillary Clinton.
