The 10 top contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination came to Houston on Thursday, and it marked the first time the city has hosted a Democratic debate since 1987. Since that time, Houston has become a true melting pot of cultures, ideas, and backgrounds, much like America is becoming. The country’s most diverse city set the perfect stage as host for the 3rd Democratic Debate.
Our founder and Houston’s Mayor Sylvester Turner’s “fitness czar” Samir Becic was in attendance at the official DNC after-party- here are some highlights:
