WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
Just a reminder that the number of regular superdelegates, now at 720, can easily change up or down, depending on circumstances. Here are just a few of the events that have or will change the number. (The 76 add-ons will stay constant).
- Joan Fitz-Gerald left the DLCC last year, and was replaced by Mark Schauer, but he is from Michigan. Michigan doesn't get any superdelegates as of now, so down 1.
- There is an open House seat in Indiana, with a special election in March where the Democrat is favored. Up 1. (There are other open house seats too, with the Republican favored, but maybe we'll get lucky).
- If an at-large delegate moves into or out of Michigan or Florida, the number will go up or down appropriately.
- And, of course, if the Michigan and Florida delegations are seated, the numbers will increase.
Update: Representative Tom Lantos has died. Lantos was 80 years old and the only Holocaust survivor to serve in Congress. I always liked listening to him on CSPAN... he will be missed by all. This brings the superdelegate number down by 1.
