LIVE from Tacoma: Preliminary Credentials Committee report delivered and adopted

We are now into our sec­ond hour here at the 2016 Wash­ing­ton State Demo­c­ra­t­ic Con­ven­tion in Taco­ma; and we’ve just heard the pre­lim­i­nary report of the Cre­den­tials Com­mit­tee, co-chaired by King Coun­ty Com­mit­tee­man Javier Valdez and Pierce Coun­ty Chair Lin­da Isen­son.

The report of the com­mit­tee was as fol­lows:

  • 445 Bernie Sanders del­e­gates have signed in
  • 201 Clin­ton del­e­gates have signed in
  • 146 Sanders alter­nates have signed in
    • All will be seat­ed
  • 59 Clin­ton alter­nates have signed in
    • 51 of those will be seat­ed

That means we have:

  • 591 Sanders del­e­gates
  • 252 Clin­ton del­e­gates
  • Total: 843 vot­ing del­e­gates present

Next we will hear the report of the Rules Com­mit­tee.
