Dem convention: What, no candy?

Obama delegate and Richmond Councilman Tony Thurmond is celebrating his ninth wedding anniversary today.

And where is the happy couple?

The young African-American elected offiical is Inside Invesco stadium with 75,000 people at the Democratic National Convention watching the first man of color nominated as the party’s choice for president of the United States.

Tony says he sent flowers earlier in the week and he and his wife will have a romantic day in Denver on Sunday before they return home to their two young daughters.

Flowers are nice. But diamonds are even better, Tony.
