Upcoming state conventions

I will be going to the Texas convention in June. I saw that the Sanders supporters wanted to see if they could steal delegates at the state conventions. Under each state delegate selection plan, the number of delegates were allocated based on the primary and you cannot vary that. In addition, each Democratic candidate has absolute right to approve all of their pledged delegates and I know that the Clinton campaign is vetting all of her pledged delegates in Texas (I am helping vet the delegates from my senate district).

The rules for Democratic conventions and GOP conventions are very different.

The Texas GOP convention is this weekend and there is open carry inside that convention. Anyone want to bet on the number of people shot by "accident" at that convention?

is trying to figure out a way to have pledged delegates switch their vote to Sanders.

4. That is why the Clinton campaign is vetting her delegates

Each candidate has absolute approval rights over their delegates and the people who are approved are not likely to flip. The Sanders delegates do not get to vote for the Clinton delegates in Texas. We break into separate sub groups and the Sanders people vote for the Sanders delegate and the Clinton delegates vote for the Clinton delegate. Then the campaigns get to approve the delegates

5. That is how we did it back in 2008. It was done within the district.

The only problem that might occur are the people assigned to count the ballots.

2. I hope whomever is running it is prepared

The Sanders people have been very disruptive in Washington and have been doing things like booing elected officials at some Washington state county conventions and bullying the super delegates to change their votes. It's ridiculous, but it's been happening.

3. My wife and I are going on Saturday to Nevada's Democratic State Convention.

Of course, we're both Hillary delegates trying to make it to the National Convention in Philly.
