– “Sanders supporters trying to sway state superdelegates”
“Bernie Sanders supporters delivered the Vermont senator a landslide win in Washington, and now they want the state’s superdelegates to take note.
However, long before Saturday’s contest, nine of Washington’s superdelegates, including the six Democratic members of Congress, two senators and Governor Jay Inslee, pledged their support to Clinton.
Unlike pledged delegates allocated proportionally based on caucus results, superdelegates can vote however they’d like at the Democratic National Convention.”
“Meanwhile, a petition circulating has amassed nearly 30,000 signatures as of Wednesday evening, and Sanders supporters have taken to social media to blast their representatives.”
“[A sample of] The pledges below are based on stated support.
· Gov. Jay Inslee (Clinton)
· Sen. Patty Murray (Clinton)
· Sen. Maria Cantwell (Clinton)
· Rep. Denny Heck (Clinton)
· Rep. Adam Smith (Clinton)
· Jaxon Ravens, Chair, Washington State Democratic Party (Remains uncommitted),” quoting KING-5 TV News.
