3 Kansas Democrat superdelegates endorse Clinton

Three Kansans who are superdelegates to the upcoming Democratic Party’s National Convention are endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.

The Kansas Democratic Party said in a release Saturday that superdelegates Lee Kinch, chairman of the Kansas Democratic Party; Melody Miller, vice chair of the Kansas Democratic Party, and Bill Roy, national committeeman, have endorsed Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

The state party says the three superdelegates also applaud Clinton’s opponent in the primary, Sen. Bernie Sanders, for “raising critically important issues,” including climate change, fair trade agreements and campaign finance.

Their endorsements come a few days after Sanders also endorsed Clinton.

The Democratic Party’s convention is later this month in Philadelphia.
