San Rafael man on unusual mission to bring Gandhi to Democratic National Convention

PHILDELPHIA (KGO) -- A San Rafael man is on an unusual mission while at the Democratic National Convention.

Jes Richardson arrived in Philadelphia this week in a Gandhi mobile to spread a message of peace. It took him five days to get there. He also made a giant Gandhi puppet.

ABC7 Morning News anchor Reggie Aqui is covering the DNC and Ran Richardson.

Richardson: "This is the Gandhi puppet."
Aqui: "So this year who is Gandhi puppet supporting?"

Richardson: "He's supporting Bernie."
Aqui: "Do you think Gandhi is going to come around for Hillary Clinton? And I mean Gandhi puppet. I think so, but it's a vote not of conscience. It's a vote of practicality."

After the convention, Richardson will head back in the Gandhi mobile for a long trek back to the Bay Area. He says he gets a lot of great reaction from people on the road who see Gandhi in the window.
