Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards of Maryland said that she “didn’t even know” that she was a Superdelegate.
As a panelist on “Meet the Press” on Sunday, moderator Chuck Todd said, “Donna, you’re somebody on here, you have extra powers. You’re a superdelegate. You’re not just a delegate, you’re a superdelegate. Should there be superdelegates? Are you going to be somebody that supports getting rid of them at the Democratic convention?”
“Well you know, can I just tell you, first of all, I didn’t even know I was a superdelegate,” Edwards replied. “But now that I know, I feel extra powerful, but what I do know is that these were the rules going in. All of us knew these rules going in, and I think it is time for us to rethink them, but you don’t do that in the middle of the game.”
In the Democratic Party superdelegates are party leaders, including sitting Democratic governors and Senators as well as all Democratic members of the House of Representatives, as reported by the Washington Free Beacon.
Apparently, “all of us” did not know the rules…
