Puerto Rican superdelegates back in the news
Chelsea Clinton just bagged a superdelegate for her mother. The youngest Clinton is campaigning today in San Juan, Puerto Rico. A few moments ago, at the Universidad del Sagrado Corazon, Luisette Cabanas, an unpledged superdelegate, announced her support for Clinton, giving the campaign the majority of automatic** delegates on the island.
This is hardly surprising. After the governor of Puerto Rico turned himself in to the Feds on his nineteen counts of electoral funds fraud Obama lost the only superdelegate supporting him.
The rest of the political bosses favored Hillary then, and they still do. Not only that, but they are the ones hosting Chelsea’s trip:
Chelsea and her entourage are being hosted by superdelegates Fransisco Domenech and Senate President Kenneth Mclintock.
Last month in my post Desperation and the Puerto Rico primary, I pointed out that
a. Puerto Rico has only 8 superdelegates and 55 delegates.
b. Puerto Ricans living in the island do not vote in the US Presidential elections. Puerto Ricans living in the fifty states do.
So here we have the Democrat party candidate for President possibly being decided by people who aren’t voting for him/her.
The primary’s scheduled for June 1.
