Clinton Spokesman Concedes Hillary Needs Superdelegates to Get Nomination (Video)
April 15, 2016
They clearly don’t like talking about it, but Hillary Clinton’s campaign conceded today she won’t be able to secure the nomination before the convention without party bosses pulling her over the line.
Campaign spokesman Brian Fallon was questioned today about the potential of Clinton getting the nomination only with the help of pledged delegates — the ones awarded based on voter preference.
He, instead, only talked about delegates as a whole, which of course includes “super delegates” — politicians and party bosses who get to put their thumb on the scales.
