Superdelegate system to come under fire at Democratic National Convention

A letter to the Democratic National Committee posted this week on the website gathered nearly 125,000 signatures in less than 48 hours in support of reform.

“The superdelegate system is unrepresentative, contradicts the purported values of the party and its members, and reduces the party’s moral authority,” said the letter.

The 14 groups involved in the campaign are Courage Campaign, Credo, Daily Kos, Demand Progress, Democracy for America, the Center for Popular Democracy, MoveOn, National Nurses United, NDN, The Other 98%,, Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Progressive Democrats of America, and Social Security Works.
