It was too good to be true.

Earlier this month, the Marin IJ said in an editorial that Congressman Jared Huffman had backpedaled on his long-standing superdelegate vote commitment to Hillary Clinton.

The editorial stated that Huffman would support the Democratic Party presidential candidate who won the majority of the votes in his congressional district in the June primary. They said he was smart to do so.

But it was too good to be true. The next day, Huffman asked them to make a correction; rather than voting the way his congressional district votes in the primary, he said that he will cast his superdelegate vote with the majority of the pledged delegates nationwide.

The corrected version of the editorial reads as follows: “Huffman now says he will vote for the candidate who wins the most pledged delegates after all the primaries and caucuses are over. It would have been more democratic if he had said he would back the candidate his district’s voters support in the June 7 primary.

Seeing the correction, an elected Bernie delegate from the Second Congressional District, Ruth Carter, immediately wrote this letter to the editor of the Marin IJ, expressing her disappointment:

About Bernie: You made a big difference. Now what?

Here’s a “yuge” thank you to everyone who turned out on Sunday to vote for our Coalition for Grassroots Progress slate of candidates to be delegates for Bernie at the Democratic National Convention.

Nearly a thousand people showed up, stood in the long lines, and voted. You made a difference – our candidates were the top five vote-getters!

And now it’s time to focus on getting out the vote for Bernie Sanders. One of the most effective things you can do now is sign up to phone-bank for Bernie. You can find a phone bank near you here. (It takes three steps: click on “Events,” then type in your zip-code, select how far you’re willing to travel, and sign up today!)

You can be part of a Bernie Sanders caucus in San Rafael or Eureka, where we can elect delegates to the Democratic National Convention who'll fight for true democracy inside and outside the party.

Help us push back against superdelegates

Alice Chan. April 26, 2016                                                       
 
 

I wrote an article about the superdelegate issue in the current edition of the North Bay Bohemian because I’m infuriated at how the Democratic Party establishment has rigged the system to prevent grassroots candidates like Bernie Sanders from getting the party’s nomination for President.

That’s why I’m urging you to be part of a Bernie Sanders caucus in San Rafael or Eureka, where we can elect delegates to the Democratic National Convention who'll fight for true democracy inside and outside the party.

Sunday, May 1
2:00 pm. (No one admitted after 3:00 pm.)
You may check in, vote and leave.

If you live in Congressional District 2 (represented by House member Jared Huffman), you can vote at either of these Bernie caucus locations:
