WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
As we move into April, we're about to pick up the pace of the selection of the add-on superdelegates. Here's what's coming up:
- April 3 - DC - 2 add-ons - Selected by the DC Democratic State Committee
- April 5 - DE - 1 add-on - Selected during the State Convention by a committee of district-level delegates
- April 5 - MO - 2 add-ons - Selected by the Democratic State Committee
- April 6 - ND - 1 add-on - Selected at the State Convention by a vote of all the caucuses
We've posted before about the DC add-ons. We expect DC's Statehood Representative, Mike Panetta, and an Obama supporter, to be named one of the add-ons, but the other one is unknown.
If the add-ons all go the way their states did, Obama would pick up all 6 add-ons. But given that MO was essentially a split decision (both candidates picked up 36 delegates), those add-ons could easily split, and we've seen that some uncommitted add-ons also get picked, so we'll have to see.
In addition to these six add-ons, Florida is also picking their three add-ons this weekend - Selected by the Florida Democratic Party State Executive Committee. Of course, as of now, Florida's add-ons do not count.
We'll post on each add-on as they are announced.
Update 4/6: Obama picked up 1 add-on in each state. Clinton picked up the other add-on in DC, and the other add-on in MO is uncommitted.
