WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
The District of Columbia named its two add-ons tonight. They are:
DC City Council members Yvette Alexander and Harry Thomas Jr .
We've been told both are Obama supporters, and we'll add them to the list as soon as we get appropriate sources. Alexander is an Obama supporter, while Thomas is a former Clinton supporter who is now on the fence, given his ward voted 83% for Obama. We're still looking for a quote from Alexander before we can add her.
4 more add-ons to come this weekend.
Update: While Mike Panetta did not get one of the add-on spots, he writes:
"I should get my ticket punched in May..I bowed out for bigger fish and horse traders tonight"May 1 is when the 3 at-large delegates (2 Obama, 1 Clinton) get selected.
Friday AM update: from Mike Panetta in the comments:
I know you want something in writing for Alexander, but 100% sure she is for Obama. I'll see if I can get something to you later.4/16 Update: Thomas has announced his endorsement of Obama, and he has been added to the endorsement list.
One of Harry's staffers told me that the councilmember "heard from his constituents" and now supports Obama...but we'll need to make sure that remains the case in Denver.
