Democratic Convention Credentials Committee Meets Sunday

The 186-member Credentials Committee for the 2008 Democratic National Convention is scheduled to meet Sunday, August 24th at 11:30AM.

The committee will consider a request by the Obama campaign to seat both the Florida and Michigan delegations at full voting strength. In addition, the credentials committee will also resolve any outstanding questions concerning the seating of delegates and alternates to the Convention, to determine who should be recognized to vote on all matters including the roll call vote for the presidential and vice presidential nominee.

Four Georgians --state Sen. David Adelman, Kirk T. Dornbush, Jr., Karol V. Mason and Patty A. Payne-- serve on this standing convention committee.
