A Carteret County man will join Senator Barack Obama along with ten others at the Democratic National Convention next week.

Lenny Julius, who now lives in Emerald Isle, is a former Vermont Senatorial Candidate himself. He was invited to the DNC in Denver. He's one of 10 chosen to meet with the presidential hopeful before Obama accepts the Democratic nomination. Julius says he wrote a letter about his support for the Illinois Senator and received a phone call with an invitation to the convention.

Julius lost the Vermont Senatorial Election but says he learned a great deal about politics.
