Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. --Thursday is the final night of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.. Washington sent 120 delegates and 20 alternates to the floor.

Nearly a dozen of them are from our congressional districts, including: Ken Taylor from Othello, Jerome Dufault from Yakima, George Fearing from Richland, Jon Ferguson from Ellensburg, Theresa Staudinger from Pasco, Mary Stephenson from Yakima, Brad Taylor from Prosser, Mathew Tomaskin from Wapato, Juan Orozco from Wapato, Elizabeth Mendoza from Union Gap, Rosalina Mendoza from Union Gap, Nancy Monacelli from Walla Walla

Richland resident and Kennewick attorney, George Fearing flew down with his 17 year old son. Over a brief phone interview, he told NBC Right Now Washington delegates have front row seats on the floor, so they are meeting many famous faces, like Reverend Jesse Jackson who sat with them during Clinton's speech Wednesday.

"It's been a terrific experience sitting through six hours of speeches, that you would think you'd get tired of. they're actually spellbound. I think the best even so far was Bill Clinton's speech last night. How you can top Bill Clinton's speech but if anybody could do it, the President could do it," said Fearing.

Washington Democrats have also organized viewing parties across the country to watch President Obama take the stage and accept his party's nomination for president, Including here in Pasco. The Tri-Cities Convention viewing party is opened to the public.

It's at Plumbers and Steamfitters Local Union
