WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
About a month ago we had a comment posted on our Superdelegate Endorsement List by Nicholas Nemec announcing that he endorsed Barack Obama last August. We searched high and low for a press release or news article to back him up but never found one.
We started our list in early January before superdelegates became the new buzzword. We decided that organizations like CBS, CNN and NBC made it easy for superdelegates to say they endorsed a candidate because their names were never mentioned. When a news article or press release shows a superdelegate's endorsement it's much harder for them to switch to another candidate.
After some debate we decided that we're as much a news organization as any other source we've used.
I spoke to South Dakota superdelegate Nicholas Nemec today and he officially announced that he supports Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton.At DemConWatch we continue to host the most accurate and the only sourced superdelegate endorsement list available on the Internet. Check back often as we're updating our lists constantly as new endorsements come in.
Mr. Nemec was elected to the South Dakota State Legislature in 1992 and served two 4-year terms. When his second term ended he was elected as a member of the DNC.
Nemec, a resident of Holabird, South Dakota, told me he will be traveling to Denver for the convention along with his family. He plans on staying a few extra days and hopes to go white-water rafting in the mountains. - 2008 Democratic Convention Watch
