Democrats gather in Sedalia for State Convention


Sanders’ supporters outnumber Clinton’s

Brandon Baker, candidate for Bernie Sanders male at-large delegate, speaks to his fellow Sanders supporters in hopes of gaining their vote during Saturday’s Missouri Democratic State Convention in the Mathewson Exhibition Center on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. Baker told those gathered that he was part of the LGBT community, a man of color and young person, but that he also stood for everyone. Baker was later elected as one of three Sanders male at-large delegates. Clinton won the state by a thin margin during Missouri’s primary election in March, so roughly the same number of delegates from each camp will head to the Democratic National Convention in July in Philadelphia. However, more Sanders delegates attended Saturday’s convention than Clinton delegates, which worked in their favor, as Sanders supporters swept all four available Democratic National Committee member positions.

State Rep. Stacey Newman, D-St. Louis, makes her case to her fellow Hillary Clinton supporters to be elected one of the Clinton female at-large delegates Saturday during the Missouri Democratic State Convention in the Lowell Mohler Assembly Hall on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. Both the Sanders and Clinton delegations included delegates from a wide range of backgrounds, including young and old — an 18-year-old man was running for Clinton male at-large delegate — a variety of sexual orientations, races and beliefs.

Bernie Sanders delegates, seen at the bottom of the photo sitting by congressional district, applaud as the names of their at-large delegates are read while Hillary Clinton delegates, at the top of the photo, finish voting for their at-large delegates. While the state Democratic Party as a whole was united in trying to defeat Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump and keeping the Republican Party out of the White House, those gathered were clearly divided and passionate about either Clinton or Sanders. During some of the down-time while votes for each delegation were counted in various elections, a few chants in honor of their respective candidates broke out in the Mathewson.
