Sanders Picks Up Superdelegate Support in Vermont [View all]

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
