2024 Is The New Magic Number

The Democratic National Committee tells us this morning that the new Magic Number is 2024, thanks to a variety of micro-changes, including the travails of Client #9.


** Bill Foster's election in Illinois's 14 congressional district increases by one the number of superdelegates.

** Andre Carson's election in Indiana 7th congressional district increases by one the number of superdelegates.

** As chronicled here, the number of superdelegates declines by one because ex-DNC chair Ken Curtis retired to Florida from Maine.

** Eliot Spitzer's resignation means that David Paterson can't serve as 2 superdelegates at once, so the number decreases by one.
