    Members of the Pennsylvania Delegation to the DNC met in a Center City hotel this morning and they’re emphasizing unity. 

    Pennsylvania Democratic Chairman Marcel Groen asked the Bernie Sanders delegates to stand and be recognized, saying he wants all voices in the party heard.”I specifically want to address you. We want you, we need you, and we want you to be a part of us,” Groen said.Governor Tom Wolf says the main goal of the convention is to end the bickering and come out unified.”I think every convention, every four years is about party unity,” Wolf said. “You come in especially having fought honestly argued and debated. The goal is to talk it out, and in four days come out of here united so we can win in November.”Wolf says no matter what the differences are within the party, that gap between Democrats and Donald Trump is far greater.
