WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
Another day another batch of superdelegates! Obama is up 2.5 to Clinton's 1 for the day.
We added the first superdelegates last night as we were closing up shop after West Virginia and Travis Childer's huge victory in Mississippi. College Democrats of America's Lauren Wolfe (MI) and Awais Khaleel (WI) endorsed Barack Obama. Wolfe's vote only counts in our Michigan/Florida tables since she is from Michigan.
The next endorsement came in at 6:30 this morning with Democrats Abroad Chair Christine Marques' endorsement of Barack Obama
“As a Democrat abroad, I've seen the repercussions of the Republican Administration every day, in the diminished reputation of the United States and in the lack of real leadership both at home and abroad, from the economy to the war in Iraq,” said Schon Marques. “I'm proud to be a Democrat, and proud of both our candidates. Today I pledge my support to Senator Barack Obama because I believe that he will take our country in the right direction, he will restore America's reputation, he will honor the men and women who are bravely serving our country, and he will reach out to Americans across the country and around the world. I hope that voters overseas join me in registering today at www.VoteFromAbroad.org so that all our voices are heard this November.”And the third endorsement came from Indiana Representative Pete Visclosky.
“America needs a President who offers a vision of the future comprised of sensible solutions to today's troubles. My choice is Senator Barack Obama, who promises to seek pragmatic, progressive solutions to problems like jobs, Iraq, the energy crisis, and healthcare. Barack Obama will bring people together, give them hope, spur change, and set the U.S. back on a course toward progress, prosperity, and global leadership.”
Hillary Clinton just got the endorsement of Tennessee add-on Vicki Harwell
“Hillary’s decisive victory in West Virginia is the latest evidence that she is the strongest candidate to take on John McCain and win back the White House,” Harwell said. “Hillary has the plans, leadership and experience to deliver real results as President.”Harwell is the President of the Tennessee Federation of Democratic Women.
