Did you know Rep. Joe Trillo is a Republican superdelegate?January 10th, 2012 at 1:59 pm by Ted Nesi under Nesi's Notes, On the Main Site
State Rep. Joe Trillo is more than just a staunch advocate of building a casino at Quonset Point. He’s also a so-called superdelegate to the Republican National Convention.
Trillo is one of three GOP superdelegates from Rhode Island, according to DemocraticConventionWatch.com, which tracks such things. And he’s the only one who has thrown his support behind a candidate: Mitt Romney.
Rhode Island’s other two superdelegates - former party chairman Mark Zaccaria and former state Rep. Carol Mumford – haven’t announced their endorsements yet, the site says.
Update: Tim White correctly suggested that the second superdelegate slot is for the party chairman, not Ken McKay himself, which means that vote now belongs to his successor Mark Zaccaria – a Romney supporter. (The guys at DemocraticConventionWatch.com now say the same.)
