Devine’s The New York Times Op-Ed
Superdelegates, Back Off
Sunday’s The New York Times featured an Op-Ed piece by Tad Devine titled “Superdelegates, Back Off.” Devine explains the history of how superdelegates came to be in the Democratic Party, and emphasizes the importance of them standing back and allowing the voters to decide this race. Otherwise, Devine writes, “if the superdelegates determine the party’s nominee before primary and caucus voters have rendered a clear verdict, Democrats risk losing the trust that we are building with voters today.”Click here to see Tad on The Colbert Report talking about superdelegates.
