Breakfast meetings are part of the fabric of national conventions, with states gathering each morning for some food and a briefing on the day's events. Speakers also dominate the landscape from top figures nationally to those within the state.

Dianne Feinstein, New York delegates hearing from Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Iowa delegates hearing from several potential candidates for the 2016 presidential nomination.
