15 delegates, elected during last week's Presidential nominating primary, will head to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this summer to represent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The names were announced Tuesday by state Democratic Party chair Joseph McNamara.
Despite Sanders' victory over Clinton by more than 10 percentage points, the just eight delegates will represent the Vermont Senator. Delegates are split proportionally in Rhode Island. Seven delegates will represent former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
There are still three Public Leader and Elected Officer delegates and six at-large delegates not representing candidates. Those will be selected and awarded proportionally in June.
