Guam replacement DNC member likely Uncommitted

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

We noted last Monday that the replacement for resigning Guam DNC member Robert Underwood would be an Obama supporter:

Guam Democratic Party Chairman Tony Charfauros yesterday said he is about to appoint either Sen. Benjamin Cruz or attorney Mike Phillips to a vacant superdelegate position -- the party's "committee man" position. Cruz and Philips are both Obama supporters.
Well, that plan is now inoperative:
Guam Democratic Party Chair Tony Charfauros says he will nominate Senator Ben Pangelinan to the vacant superdelegate position of National Committeeman.
So far, each presidential candidate has one committed Super-delegate, Taling Taitano for Clinton and Jaime Paulino for Obama. Party-chair elect Pilar Lujan, Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo and Pangelinan have not publicly said who they are supporting. -Pacific News Center
Then again, maybe he changes his mind and nominates himself, since he lost re-election as party chair and won't be going to Denver as a superdelegate.

Pangelian has been appointed!

He needs to be approved by Guam Dems and DNC but it looks just a formality! He is uncommitted, probably he will try to work on a deal for Guam with the candidates!
