Barack Obama has picked up a superdelegate endorsement on the morning of the Oregon/Kentucky primaries. Iowa Democratic Chairman Scott Brennan announced he will be supporting the Illinois senator, bring Obama's total of Iowa superdelegates to 7 out of a total of 11.
UPDATE: Who knew Obama did so much for Guam? Guam Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo has endorsed him today:
Senator Obama is working very closely with Senator Patrick Leahy, Chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, and other Senate leaders to secure more support for H.R. 1595, the Guam World War II Loyalty Recognition Act. Senator Obama fully understands and supports the efforts to seek full recognition for the patriotism and suffering endured by the people of Guam during enemy occupation in World War II.
Senator Obama has also pledged to help improve Guam's economy, including through opportunities with the military build-up--an issue I have worked very hard on since taking office--and I believe he is the right candidate to help move Guam and our nation forward given the challenges we face in our world today."
UPDATE: Hillary Clinton has landed a superdelegate of her own, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley:
"Regardless of the outcome of the primary, Mrs. Clinton's energy, stamina, and resolve have changed the course of history for women seeking office, including the presidency, and I dare say, have changed the course of history of Presidential politics in the United States. It is for these reasons that I will vote for Hillary Clinton in August at the Nominating Convention."
