The kerfuffle we posted about yesterday between Alaskan Bernie Sanders supporter Levi Younger and Alaska Democratic Party superdelegate Kim Metcalfe over her support for Hillary Clinton has taken to twitter.
The hastag #kimmetcalfe had dozens of posts this morning with people from around the world demanding that Ms. Metcalfe change her declared support from Clinton to Sanders so that it would be in line with the 81% of Alaska Democrat Caucus voters who supported Sanders.
Here are some of the tweets:
Ms. Metcalfe appears to be becoming a symbol of Bernie Sanders supporters frustration over the party establishment’s support for Clinton.
For those Bernie supporters who feel the Alaska Democratic Party and the insiders who run it don’t reflect their concerns, we at the Midnight Sun refer you to this paragraph from our coverage of the caucuses this weekend:
“Bernie Sanders won the Alaska caucus about 4-1, but what most of those who voted for Bernie either didn’t know or couldn’t be bothered to care about was that the Presidential caucus was only one function of the event. There were still the matters of electing delegates to the state convention, and electing district & regional leadership positions. Very few of the throngs of Bernie supporters stuck around to feel the bern of responsibility for building their party apparatus to win elections.”
