Rep. Dan Kildee was thinking more about his family than politics at this year’s Democratic National Convention.";

The final night of the Democratic National Convention will bring Hillary Clinton’s formal acceptance of the party’s presidential nomination.

Her acceptance will mark a historic week for the Democrats, but also a week of disappointment for Bernie Sanders supporters. Rep. Dan Kildee, D-Flint Township, was in attendance during Tuesday’s roll call vote, where he had a chance to reflect on this year’s election cycle.

“My thoughts were far less about politics,” Kildee said. “I thought about … my five-year-old granddaughter, who will now grow up in a country where that glass ceiling has been broken.”

Kildee joined Stateside to share his perspective of the DNC and to discuss his possible run for Michigan governor in two years.

GUEST Rep. Dan Kildee represents Michigan’s 5th District.
