Back for More

When the Democrats gather at the Fleet Center in Boston on July 26, Rep. Mike McIntyre will be enjoying his second turn as a superdelegate. But the North Carolina House Member’s national convention experience goes all the way back to 1980, when he served as a Jimmy Carter delegate in Madison Square Garden (site of this year’s Republican National Convention).

At the time, McIntyre was a law student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During the convention he met then-Sen. Robert Morgan (D-N.C.), a fellow Tar Heel who agreed to pose for a photo and then autograph it for the future lawmaker.
