The oldest and youngest GOP delegates meet (video)

View Comments

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Seventy-six years may separate them, but the youngest and oldest delegates are finding common ground at the Republican National Convention.

At 93, former Montana Gov. Tim Babcock has attended every GOP presidential nominating convention over the past 60 years. And at 17, Evan Draim of northern Virginia is attending his first this week in Tampa, Fla.

Babcock says, “Our salvation is going to be young people like this boy here.” Babcock was Montana’s governor from 1962 to 1968. Draim is about to enter his senior year of high school.
