The contest for the Democratic presidential nomination appears to be far from over with Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) and Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) battling it out in the remaining states prior to the end of the primary season in June. And it’s all but certain the popularly elected pledged delegates won’t give either of the candidates the 2,024 delegates needed to win the nomination. So, the approximately 800 superdelegates – who can vote as they wish – are likely to decide the outcome.
Enter a website known as LobbyDelegates.com , which will, for a fee, lobby the uncommitted superdelegates on behalf of anyone who wants pressure put on those superdelegates. Jack Cardetti with the Missouri Democratic Party says about a third of this state’s superdelegates are still uncommitted and are being heavily lobbied.
Cardetti recommends against using LobbyDelegates.com, suggesting Missourians who want to lobby the uncommitted delegates send comments and opinions to the Missouri Democratic Party , which will forward the correspondence to the superdelegates.
