DENVER ” Some Barack Obama delegates from Colorado are upset about the way Wednesday’s vote for the presidential nomination is unfolding.

Colorado delegates were casting their votes on Wednesday morning, and the tally will be reported on the floor of the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night.

State Democratic chairwoman Pat Waak (wahk) says the morning vote will be the only one the state delegation takes. That means there will be no chance for those who vote for Hillary Clinton to change their vote to Obama in a show of unity.

That worries some of the Obama delegates, who fear a split vote between Obama and Clinton will show a lingering rift.

It’s not clear whether other state delegations are voting the same way as Colorado.
