Petitioners Urge VT Superdelegates To Support Sanders


ABC22 / FOX44 - Staci DaSilva - April 8, 2016  SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt.

Nearly 3,000 Vermonters are urging some of the state’s superdelegates to reevaluate who they choose to support at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this July.

"I felt really passionate, as I think a lot of Vermonters do, that these superdelegate votes should be cast for Bernie Sanders," said Julie Winn, with Rights & Democracy.

Julie Winn is a decade long supporter of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. She volunteered for his first Senate campaign.

“He speaks up and actually comes through and acts for the majority of the working class people,” she said.

So when Sanders won an overwhelming 86.1% of the vote in Vermont on Super Tuesday, Winn thought the superdelegates would also fall in line.

“This is the will of the people and these are our elected officials,” said Winn.
