Levi Younger, from Eagle River, Alaska, is a recent political science graduate who caucused last Saturday with thousands of other Alaskans. Younger recently reached out to superdelegate Kim Metcalfe on Facebook, asking her to side with her state and support Sanders at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Metcalfe, who is listed on the Alaska Democratic Party website as the stateâ€™s national committeewoman since 2012, cavalierly told Younger she would be supporting Hillary Clinton, due to her â€œnegativeâ€ conversations with Sanders supporters.
