Rep. Tulsi Gabbard posts petition to eliminate superdelegates


Every Democratic governor, Democratic member of Congress and all elected members of the Democratic National Committee are automatically superdelegates.

That's a lot of the Democratic establishment that lawmakers like Gabbard and Sanders are fighting, but they're not alone. At a state convention Saturday, the West Virginia Democratic Party passed a resolution that called for the elimination of the superdelegate system.

They also called on national party Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to resign, saying: "If she does not resign in a timely manner, we call on the Democratic National Committee [to] take whatever steps are necessary ... to remove her and install a new chairperson."
