Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl is in Denver this week for the Democratic National Convention. He says even though he supported Sen. Clinton in the primary he will cast his vote for Sen. Obama. He says he feels the party coming together around Obama and says Clinton did a good job of moving her supporters when she pointed out that the real fight was not about her but about ending the republican mistakes of the last 8 years. Ravenstahl says it is important for Pittsburghers to vote for Obama in November because he is the one who will restore funding for issues important to big cities and he is the candidate that understands the needs of urban dwellers.
