The Michigan 36 - Obama gets 18
(Matt, 2008 Democratic Convention Watch)
Michigan selected 36 Uncommitted delegates at their District Conventions in April. The state of these 36 delegates, specifically whether they have officially endorsed Obama, has become important in advance of this weekend's RBC meeting. Knowing how many of the 36 are committed to Obama could make the difference in what type of deal the Obama campaign is willing to accept. We asked our readers to help us out, and they did.
Information was hard to come by - We weren't even able to find the names of 5 of the 36 delegates.
Of the remaining 31, 30 of them have been reported to support Obama, but there aren't good sources for 12 of the 30. We will continue to look for verifiable sources for the rest of these delegates.
But we do have good sources for 18 delegates, and therefore we are moving 18 Uncommitted delegates into the Obama column in our Michigan/Florida sidebar counter, as well as in Scenario 5 in FL & MI By The Numbers.
