Taylor may not show for Dem convention

A Mississippi congressman, who’s a Democratic superdelegate, says he probably won’t attend his party’s national convention this summer.

Fourth District Rep. Gene Taylor said he might not even vote for the Democratic presidential nominee in the fall.

“I just try to use my time well. I just don’t know what I would accomplish by spending three days (at the convention),” Taylor said.

Taylor has been in Congress since 1989 and is a conservative “Blue Dog” Democrat who often bucks his own party on the budget and other issues. He represents a south Mississippi district that has gone for Republicans in recent presidential elections.
