Sanders Picks Up Superdelegate Support in Vermont

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) now has a 6-4 edge over rival Hillary Clinton among Vermontís 10 superdelegates to the Democratic National Convention.

Sanders picked up the support of three superdelegates Tuesday. Vermont Democratic Party chair Dottie Deans, party vice chair Tim Jerman and Secretary of State Jim Condos all announced their support for Sanders.

At a Statehouse press conference, Condos and Jerman cited Sandersí margin of victory in Vermontís March 1 primary. Sanders won nearly 86 percent of the vote, outpolled Clinton in every Vermont town and won all 11 of the stateís district delegates to the convention.

The stateís 10 superdelegates donít have to base their support on the primaryís outcome, but Condos and Jerman said it was a factor for them.


Backing Sanders, in addition to Deans, Jerman and Condos are: Sanders himself, Congressman Peter Welch (D-Vt.) and Democratic National Com.mittee member Rich Cassidy

4. Will be interesting to watch

Will he go down with the Titanic? Would be ironic if so- the company he keeps now repeatedly stabbed him in the back once upon a time.

6. Bottom of article it mentions who's voting for Hillary.

Those supporting Clinton: Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Gov. Peter Shumlin, former governor Howard Dean and Democratic National Committee member Billi Gosh.

7. yeah I know he's set for Hillary now. In fact, he said he's gonna vote for Hillary no matter what.

I'm just curious to see if he'll stick to his position while he's being hammered on twitter everyday for being a sell-out.
It looks like the other superdelegates might switch to Bernie later on. Howard Dean's gonna look pretty bad -his state overwhelmingly voted for Bernie.
