Texas Refuses to Double-Check Caucus Signatures
Hillary Clinton's campaign received 2,000 complaints from Texas voters about the states' caucuses. Her campaign asked Texas to double-check the signatures to make sure those who participated were entitled to do so.
Today, the Texas Democratic Party refused her request.
Hillary won the primary vote but with 41% of caucus results counted, Obama led 56 percent to 44 percent.
Obama campaign response:
"Our campaign agrees that the best way to capitalize on the incredible enthusiasm and hundreds of thousands of new voters who participated in the precinct conventions on March 4th is to count their votes promptly and accurately. We look forward to continuing to work with the Texas Democratic Party to ensure that happens."
As for transparency, forget about it. The State Party says:
There is no plan at this time for the party to provide a statewide count of those regional convention results.
