WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
In the midst of the superdelegate flood on Tuesday, one endorsement stood out. Not counting the South Dakota endorsements of Clinton by Sen. Tim Johnson and DNC member Cheryl Chapman, who both followed their state's vote, Clinton's last superdelegate endorsement was from Wyoming DNC member Cindy Nunley:
Let's say this for Wyoming Democrat Cindy Nunley: No one can accuse her of political expediency.
On Tuesday evening, as Barack Obama stood on the brink of securing enough delegate support to declare himself the party's presumptive presidential nominee, Nunley announced her support -- for the loser in the two-way race, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
As a member of the Democratic National Committee, Nunley is a superdelegate to the party's August convention in Denver. And, it appears, the last party official to board the sinking Clinton ship. - LA Times
At 8:25 p.m. (EDT), while part of Clinton's campaign presumably was in the process of dismantling itself, her press office sent out notice that Nunley had announced her support for the senator from New York -- the first superdelegate to do so during the day. - LA Times
Cynthia Nunley, a national committeewoman, says she waited to announce her decision until each state held its Democratic presidential nominating contest. The final primaries are being held Tuesday in Montana and South Dakota.We haven't noticed whether she's switched to Obama since Tuesday.
Nunley says she is supporting Clinton because of her commitment to veterans, the number of new voters she brought into the process and the "strength and determination" she's showed throughout the race. - AP
