VIDEO: Wisconsin Delegates Build a Home With Ty Pennington
Delegates at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte were led by "Extreme Home Makeover" host Monday as they worked together to help build a home for a local veteran.
CHARLOTTE, NC -- Most convention events don’t involve Wisconsin delegates swinging hammers and painting walls, but this isn’t your average convention event.
Democratic delegates — including those from Wisconsin — on Monday participated in the Craftsman House United project to build a home for a military veteran.
Half the home was built last week by delegates at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. The home was transported to Charlotte, where Democrats finished up the work.
The project was a collaboration between Heroes at Home, Rebuilding Together, Craftsman and NextGen Home, and was led by Ty Pennington, of "Extreme Home Makeover" fame.
