Apparently a few state delegates made up their mind on the U.S. Senate candidates before the caucuses and are now refusing to meet with the other candidates. This is a dereliction of their duty.
Sure, it's fine to go into the caucus with preferences. But I remind these delegates that, regardless of initial preferences, they still have the responsibility to meet in good faith with all the candidates, listen to them and question them.
If some delegates refuse to meet with the other Senate candidates, then they were elected as delegates under false pretenses and should be ashamed. Get up and do your duty.
