MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin Democrats are slated to debate a nonbinding resolution supporting the elimination of super delegates, the party insiders who can support whoever they want for president.

The resolution made public Thursday is among 22 to be debated at the state party convention June 4 in Green Bay. Some supporters of Bernie Sanders have been outspoken against the super delegate system, saying it gives candidates favored by the party establishment an unfair advantage.

Sanders won the popular vote in Wisconsin on April 5, but because of super delegates backing Hillary Clinton he only has a five-delegate advantage. Three super delegates are undecided.

The resolution says super delegates “have eroded the faith of the base in its ability to affect the outcome of the presidential nomination.”
