Illinois Congressman Lipinski comes out for Bernie




WASHINGTON DC – As reported by Lynn Sweet, Illinois Congressman Dan Lipinski, a “super delegate” to the Democratic National Convention, said if there is a contested convention, he will be for Bernie Sanders because he won his congressional district in the Illinois primary.

“When the votes were counted, Sen. Bernie Sanders received 54% and Sec. Hillary Clinton received 45% in my district. Therefore, if there is a contested vote at the Democratic National Convention in July, I will vote for Sen. Sanders.” 

Every Illinois House member is a “super delegate,” a nickname given to the Democratic party honchos who automatically are delegates to the convention, which will take place in Philadelphia July 25th-28th.
