The California Democratic Party has just posted a list of the state’s delegates to the Democratic National Convention, a contingent that usually includes a handful from entertainment.
Actress Thora Birch is among the district level delegates, and director Paris Barclay is an at large delegate. Others on the list include Tennis Channel CEO Ken Solomon and the Capital Group’s John Emerson, who are co-chair of President Obama’s Southern California finance committee and prominent campaign bundlers. Colleen Bell, a TV producer who with her husband Bradley hosted Obama at a February fundraiser at their Holmby Hills home, also is an at-large delegate.
Other delegates: HBO’s James Costos and Mai Lassiter, the wife of producer James Lassiter. Each has co-hosted fundraising events for Obama. Saban Capital’s Alex De Ocampo, running for Los Angeles City Council, and attorney Dana Perlman also will be going to Charlotte.
The convention runs from Sept. 4-6.
