Michael Franz, assistant professor of government, was interviewed by WCSH for a segment about the role of super delegates that aired Thursday, February 7, 2008.

Super delegates are delegates to a presidential nominating convention who are not legally bound by the decisions of party primaries or caucuses. Sometimes called "unpledged delegates," they are current elected officeholders and current party officials, including all Democratic members of Congress and former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, as well as former Vice President Al Gore.
