BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Democrats have selected the 18 delegates who will attend the party’s national convention next month in Philadelphia.

North Dakota Democratic Party Executive Director Robert Haider says more than 400 delegates attended the meeting Saturday in Bismarck.

The 18 delegates were chosen based on the June 7 caucus results, with Sen. Bernie Sanders getting 13 delegates and five allocated to Hillary Clinton. Each candidate was allocated one alternate.

A separate group of five superdelegates are not committed to a candidate. They are party officials and North Dakota Democrats who hold elective office.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is a superdelegate and has endorsed Clinton.

National committeeman Chad Nodland is supporting Sanders. The remaining three superdelegates have remained uncommitted.
