Clinton picks up an add-on from Massachusetts

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com

From a Clinton Press Release:

The Clinton Campaign today announced the support of Massachusetts automatic delegate Arthur Powell, after the Massachusetts State Democratic Committee elected him one if its automatic delegates to the Democratic National Convention.
We'll have more udpates later. Clinton super lead back to 1.5 votes. Table will be updated once both add-ons are known.

Hmmm, well the Clinton team didn't announce two people, and I'd have to assume both were chosen at the same time. So....

Fox News just had Breaking News just said Obama has picked up two more from the Virgin Islands.

Isn't there a symbolism?
He cut her lead yesterday with the help of 2 African Americans, Latino, Native American and Hawaii supers... and today he is on top with the help of two VI delegates!

Semblance said...

And one of those VI delegates is a previous Clinton supporter who is currently listed here under Clinton!

It's Kevin Rodriguez.

Obama announces two pickups from the Virgin Islands, Kevin Rodriguez and Carole Burke. Kevin Rodriguez switched from Hillary.

Ohio add-ons :)

According to ben smith at politico, Obama has picked up two virgin island super delegates today.

Francie said...

Wow whomever designed Hillary's web site designed the Ohio Dems' web site too. It's pretty much the same style.

According to a pledged Obama delegate I spoke with at the Massachusetts DSC, it's not a foregone conclusion that the second add-on will be a Clinton supporter. The Committee seemed pretty evenly split, judging by the pins and stickers. He should be helped by the influx of strong Obama support evident during last month's district conventions.

Does anyone else suspect as I do that Mark Halperin may be a closet consultant for the Clinton campaign?

He posted a really ignorant question on his blog and got a deserving response on daily kos.

Attorney General Martha Coakley is Massachusetts's other add-on superdelegate.
