Hickenlooper: No Super Delegates Have Switched To Sanders

June 7, 2016

Gov. John Hickenlooper says he’s not aware of any Democratic super delegates in Colorado willing to shift their support from Hillary Clinton to Bernie Sanders.

Sanders is hanging his hope of the nomination on convincing enough party leaders to switch their support to him at the national convention in July.

Hickenlooper himself is a Democratic super delegate. He tells CPR’s Colorado Matters he believes Clinton is the party’s best chance for winning the presidency.

"They created super delegates to bring a certain amount of stability and judgement in terms of who is the best candidate over the whole campaign," the governor said.

Sanders supporters have been lobbying Colorado’s super delegates to change allegiance, arguing they’re contradicting the will of the state’s voters.

Sanders won Colorado’s March Democratic caucuses by a wide margin.
