Kentucky will have a total of 60 delegates at the Democrat National Convention, August 25-28, in Denver, Colorado. Those 60 delegates are composed of two main groups - pledged delegates and unpledged delegates. Pledged delegates are, at least in theory, pledged to vote for one of the two candidates based on the outcome of Kentucky's primary election. Unpledged delegates are able to cast their vote however they wish. Of Kentucky's pledged delegates, 34 are allocated by congressional district.
“We’re very disappointed,” KEEP chairman Brereton Jones said March 28. “I think we’ve thought for some time that it was improperly handled. I think the governor made a big mistake in not introducing the bill immediately as House Bill 1, and calling the Democratic leadership together and saying, ‘This is what I ran on, this is what I told the people I would do, this is what they said they wanted. We’ll pass this bill first, and then I’ll help you pass your bills.’
