Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley has stayed active on social media during his stay at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. While he addressed a crowd of delegates at a breakfast event Tuesday, Cranley stuck to the theme: unity.

"Like anything, when you lose something, there is a grieving process," Cranley told WCPO. "But the fact is, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are the top people they care about, and they're all uniting behind Hillary. So I feel very, very confident that the party will be united and is united."

Cranley's also been a vocal advocate for Cincinnati and said the Queen City is "leading on progressive issues."

The mayor also echoed Ohio Democratic Party Chair David Pepper's pleas for party unity in the buckeye state.

"This is Ohio... The other party has never won a national election without your state. It's on you," Pepper said to delegates Monday.

Cranley also snapped a photo with former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, calling him "our next U.S. Senator."
