Kansas Dems Not “All In” For Clinton

KSAL StaffJuly 27, 2016

A push for unity behind Hillary Clinton from Bernie Sanders is pulling his Kansas delegates at the Democratic National Convention into her camp, though not all of them.

The state’s delegation on Tuesday cast only 14 of its 37 votes for Clinton. It cast 23 votes for Sanders, in line with the results of state’s presidential caucuses in March.

Sanders delegate Sage TeBeest of Wamego said she is now “reinvigorated to continue the revolution.” She texted from the convention in Philadelphia that she is supporting Clinton as the Democratic nominee.

But Julie Perry, a Sanders delegate from Mission, said she’s not going to lower her expectations for real change and Clinton still must earn her vote. The registered nurse said she’ll continue fighting for universal health care coverage.
