Homer Page is a delegate from Missouri. 

He was pledged to Sen. Bernie Sanders, but made the switch to Hillary once she was officially made the nominee. 

But his candidate switch is not the only thing that makes Homer unique. 

"I am blind," said Homer, "I come from a family of five generations of blind people."

And that comes with challenges, the former university professor said. 
"The major roadblock is convincing my sighted colleagues that I am a competent and skilled person."
But Homer said that only encourages him to do more. 

Now, that means keeping his eye on the prize--to get another Clinton elected.
