My Support of Hillary Clinton and My Role as a Superdelegate
Earl Blumenauer

It is your right and privilege to support Hillary Clinton. It should not be your right or privilege to wield a supervote — one worth as much as the votes of thousands of regular voters — to bend the nomination in the direction you prefer, quite possibly against the will of those who elected you. Your superdelegate vote is one of the most anti-democratic mechanisms of the Democratic nomination process, and you should disavow it.
