U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson is feeling optimistic about Hillary Clinton’s chances against Donald Trump coming out of what he called a great Democratic convention in Philadelphia.

The Democratic party endured a long primary battle between the former secretary of state and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders that went into June. However, Johnson said he felt the convention helped begin the process of bridging the divide between supporters of the two candidates as they turned their attention toward beating Trump in November.
