Merrick Alpert's view

Lev St. King, communications director for Merrick Alpert just came by the press area. He is passing out the text of the speech that Merrick would give were he not “denied access” to address the convention. However, no candidates are scheduled to address the convention -- so I don’t know how Alpert’s people can claim the rules committee singled him out.  I asked St. King what percent of the delegates he expects, and he said that their campaign is “too humble” to make a prediction. He pointed out that “numerous delegates” have been in touch since the New York Times Blumenthal article was published on Monday.  St. King said, “I hope the delegates make the right choice to allow a primary so voters can have a voice.”
