Lipinski Issues Statement Regarding Superdelegate Vote
From Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3):
"During this primary season, there has been a lot of discussion about the role of superdelegates in the selection of the Democratic presidential nominee.
"As a Democratic member of Congress, I have a vote at the Democratic National Convention as a superdelegate. Before the Illinois primary I told Democrats in the Third District that I decided that I would pledge my vote to whichever candidate won the district.
"When the votes were counted, Sen. Bernie Sanders received 54% and Sec. Hillary Clinton received 45% in my district. Therefore, if there is a contested vote at the Democratic National Convention in July, I will vote for Sen. Sanders."
