Dwight Pelz Backs Obama

posted by on May 19 at 9:25 AM

Yet another undeclared Washington State superdelegate gets off the fence. Maybe that crowd of 75,000 people at the Obama rally in Portland yesterday played some part in getting our state’s Democratic Party Chairman to declare his support late last night?

Dwight was on NPR this morning. He waited until today to allow the WA state national convention delegate selection process to conclude, which it did this weekend. Sorry, no drama here.

Please change your post not to be so inflammatory, Dan. Nobody benefits besides your click-through rate.

How come he didn't announce until now that he was going to endorse as soon as the convention delegate allocation was done? It's hard to believe he isn't using that as an excuse after the fact for simply waiting until it was safe.

About friggin' time.

Probably an overreaction to Paul Berendt's ultra-early endorsement of Howard Dean in the summer of 2003. For quite a while, I've been saying that Dwight was going to do exactly this ... after all (he could state, correctly), until Saturday Washington had exactly zero pledged DNC delegates.

Speaking of Berendt, he was chosen as a pledged Clinton delegate in WA-03.
