In the wake of a Wikileaks release of emails suggesting the DNC favored Hillary Clinton over fellow candidate Bernie Sanders, state party spokesman Jake Hamburg says the state party worked hard to ensure impartiality during the primary.
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Several Alaska delegates who supported Bernie Sanders president say they'll vote for presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in November, though unenthusiastically.
Delegate Taz Tally says he has long been a nonpartisan but got involved in the Democratic party because of Sanders.
He says he was disappointed in hacked Democratic National Committee emails that he says confirmed what many people believed — that the DNC was rooting for Clinton.
Tally says he'll vote for Clinton because he thinks Republican nominee Donald Trump is dangerous. But he doesn't think he'll actively campaign for her.
Wikileaks posted emails suggesting the DNC was favoring Clinton over Sanders during the primary season. Emails related to DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz's trip to Alaska were part of the release.
State party spokesman Jake Hamburg says the state party worked hard to ensure impartiality during the primary and had hoped to get Sanders' wife to participate in the Schultz event.
