No, I stand by my assertion that is more selection process than election, even if some stages of the selection are based upon the popular support of a limited segment of the Party.
The Democrats have more than 50. Presumably Washington DC has a primary. I believe that American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico etc... Democrats Abroad also has its own primary.
