WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
There's been a bit of churn in the superdelegates recently. Most of it doesn't affect the overall number, but two events have changed the total:
- The sad death of Congressman Tom Lantos
- A change at the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee. Joan Fitz-Gerald of Colorado left the DLCC in April, 2007 (although she is still on the published superdelegate lists as of January of this year),
and was replaced by Mike Gronstal the former Vice-Chair. Mark Schauer of Michigan took over for Gronstal. Florida and Michigan superdelegates are not included in the current count.
Update 2: Well we messed up on that one. The DLCC informs us that Fitz-Gerald's replacement as a DNC member is Oklahoma Senate President Pro Tem Mike Morgan, not Mark Schauer of Michigan. Since Morgan is not from Michigan, that puts us back at 719 regular superdelegates, and the total delegate count is 4048, so still need 2025 to win. We regret the error.
