Wisconsin delegates have comparatively low profile at Democratic National Convention

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Wisconsin delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa were treated like royalty. They were given a prime location on the convention floor, right up front and to the right of the stage.

The delegates from Wisconsin aren't nearly as well positioned when the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte officially opens Tuesday.

Though they won't be sitting in the back of the Times Warner Arena (like Oklahoma's will be), the Wisconsin delegates will be far to the right of the stage, tucked in a corner. They will sit below a picture of the Lincoln Monument.
