Minority Reports Withdrawn

Platform debate morning summary: the first couple of minority reports lost convincingly enough that the members of the minority sought and won permission from the delegates to withdraw the remainder of their minority reports.  Before lunch, the first five of the Platform Committee's recommendations all passed.  The delegates narrowly rejected a motion to pass the rest of the Committee's recommendations en masse, but prospects were good for passing many more of the recommendations in the afternoon, thanks in part to the new rule deferring floor amendments until after a recommendation loses.
The morning count of registered delegates was 552, and at 2:45 PM it was 633.
