WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
While final results won't be available until tomorrow, indications are that Obama picked up most, but not necessarily all, of the 36 Uncommitted delegates up-for-grabs this weekend. In CD 9:
Sen. Hillary Clinton was awarded three delegates and three others were elected as uncommitted delegates, although two of them promised to support Sen. Barack Obama at the convention. - Detroit Free Press.In CD8:
In Lansing, Griffin Rivers beat 17 others for the male uncommitted spot, while Irene McDonnell Cahill of Howell, a teamster, bested 21 others for the female uncommitted spot. Both back the Illinois senator, as was evidenced by Rivers' black T-shirt emblazoned with the words: "No drama with Obama. - APCD2: Obama picked up both Uncommitted delegates. - Muskegon Chronicle
CD 4: Obama 2 for 2. - Morning Sun.
So that's 8 out of 9 for Obama in these 4 CDs.
Sen. Barack Obama's supporters appeared to fall short of capturing all the 36 uncommitted delegates chosen Saturday during Democratic congressional district conventions across the state.Update: Bowers at OpenLeft writes that Obama supporters have won almost all of the 36 delegate spots, but some of them may be "weak" supporters. We should have all the names tomorrow, but in some sense they may need to be treated like superdelegates, as they are all still technically "Uncommitted", so we may need to hear from each delegate to see how they stand.
In three Southeast Michigan districts, activists supported by Michiganders for Obama, the Illinois senator's ad hoc organization in the state, lost out to union-backed candidates, said Christina Montague, the group's state coordinator. Elsewhere across the state, the Obama group's appeared to fare well, she said. - Detroit News
