Remaining Vermont Superdelegates Go With Sanders

Mar 8, 2016

The last three of Vermont's unpledged — or super — delegates to the Democratic National Convention have declared their support for Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Tuesday's announcements from Secretary of State Jim Condos, state Rep. Tim Jerman and state party Chairwoman Dottie Deans mean there are six Vermont superdelegates for the home-state senator and four for Hillary Clinton.

Condos and Jerman spoke at a Statehouse news conference, where they pointed to the fact that Sanders had won more than 86 percent of the vote — versus less than 14 percent for Clinton — in last week's Vermont Democratic primary.

Deans made her statement in an email in which she praised Sanders for bringing Vermont values to the nation.
