Action News spoke with delegates from swing states for their take on what Hillary Clinton needs to address during her speech on the final night of the Democratic National Convention.

We began with our home state of Pennsylvania, an important swing state where Donald Trump is showing some traction.

"I think she should talk about how Donald Trump is the worse candidate for the U.S. presidency ever," said Catherine Gilmore-Richardson of Wynnefield.



And where there are still many disgruntled Bernie Sanders supporters, Melissa Robbins of Fox Chase said, "Free college for all, Bernie talked about criminal justice reform. These are things that widely affect African Americans here in our city."

We also checked in with the important swing state of Ohio.

"We're hoping that she will be able to bring and restore jobs back into our area like a lot of the other Midwestern states that are suffering at this time," said Louise Buchanan of Cleveland, Ohio.

"She needs to come across with something that's gonna increase jobs especially in our Appalachian area where a lot of coal miners have lost their jobs," said Delbert Price of Hamilton, Ohio.

And then there is the swing state that is Florida.

"We have to bring the country together. She can really appeal to Independents and Republicans that are feeling a little bit afraid of Donald Trump," said Dr. Maureen McKenna of Seabring, Florida.

"She needs to just continue to remind people that we are stronger together," said the Rev. Ron Helms of Pensacola, Florida.

And we would be remiss if we did not check in with Bernie Sanders' home state of Vermont.

"A lot of Bernie supporters are feeling very raw. They've worked hard and the issues need to be acknowledged that he championed," said Connor Casey, Executive Director Democratic Party.
