SCDP Certifies Delegates  

Columbia, SC- South Carolina Democratic Party officials certified a list of 54 delegates and seven alternates to 2008 Democratic National Convention with the Democratic National Committee this week.

More than 1,600 South Carolina Democrats elected 46 delegates during the 2008 South Carolina Democratic Party Convention on May 3 in Columbia. These delegates, along with the state's eight automatic delegates, will have a role in selecting the Party's presidential nominee during the national convention being held Aug. 25 - 28 in Denver.

SCDP officials say the newly-elected delegates are excited about this year's national convention.

"Our delegation can't wait to go to Denver. They've worked very hard to get to this point and know that this year's national convention will be a historic occasion. They may ultimately decide which of our two great presidential candidates will face John McCain in November," said South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Carol Fowler.
