Columbia, SC -- Three previously undeclared Superdelegates to the Democratic National Convention have just publicly announced their support of Senator Barack Obama, while an additional two have thrown their support behind Senator Hillary Clinton.
According to Time Magazine, the Chairperson of the Congressional Caucus For Women's Issues, Rep. Lois Capps (CA-23), along with Iowa Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-1), are endorsing Sen. Obama. And MSNBC's First Read reports Indiana Rep. Baron Hill ( IN-), has endorsed Sen. Obama as well.
In a counter-punch, Marc Ambinder's blog post in The Atlantic reports that Sen. Hillary Clinton won the endorsement today from a Puerto Rico SuperDelegate, Luisette Cabanas, from Guaynamo. Sen. Clinton also won the endorsement of Bill George, president of the AFL-CIO. Mr. George is the latest Pennsylvania SuperDelegate to announce his choice -- that state has five remaining "undecideds."
The Associated Press unofficial superdelegate tallies have Clinton leading Obama: Clinton, 262; Obama, 243. The AP"s total delegate tallies: Obama, 1729; Clinton 1596. The winning nominee, traditionally, would have won the support of 2,025 delegates.
