Democrats do indeed suspend convention

Delegates and alternates crowd the hallway leading to Bally's convention center as they wait to get in to the Clark County Democratic Convention Saturday, Feb. 23, 2008.


The Clark County convention wrapped around 4 p.m., after supporters from both campaigns voted to suspend the presidential delegate vote.

When convention chair Bill Stanley initially moved to suspend voting earlier in the afternoon, the assembled delegates revolted and voted the motion down. The campaigns then met with supporters in separate rooms to explain why suspending the vote was necessary.

The lights are up, the balloons are coming down and a horde of angry Democrats have left the building. The Sunday Sun will tell you what went wrong.
