Ickes' message to Clinton national delegates

I like Harold Ickes. I was proud of Ickes' opposition to the allocation of Michigan delegates at the DNC Rules Committee meeting this past May and how he stood up against the committee's action by arguing "This motion will hijack -- hijack -- remove four delegates won by Hillary Clinton," Ickes said in opposing the Michigan motion. "This body of 30 individuals has decided that they're going to substitute their judgment for 600,000 [Michigan] voters.

Ickes has been a senior strategist for Senator Clinton's presidential nomination. He served as Deputy Chief of Staff for President Clinton. His father was FDR's Secretary of the Interior for 14 years and was responsible for implementing most of the New Deal
Below is a blast email sent today that national delegates for Hillary received from Ickes. Hillary's campaign continues to communicate with delegates after she suspended the campaign.
