Kally says she wanted to get some experience and see what the convention is like.The girls’ dad has worked on several campaigns, including Bill Bradley’s Iowa effort. Sixteen-year-old Eric Bagley of Mason City is Iowa’s other “youth delegate.” Bagley says he’ll be a convention page on the floor doing “whatever they tell me to do.” He’s excited about the job, as he says you have to start somewhere.Bagley says he eventually wants to move up to being candidate for office.Bagley says this convention will give him a chance to see how things work.
