Obama and Clinton each get a Former DNC Chair's Endorsement

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

If you read Matt's Distinguished Party Leaders post a couple weeks ago you'll remember that all former DNC Chairmen are superdelegates. Today we can cross off two of the DPL's from our non-endorse list and move them to the endorsement list.

Pennsylvania Governor (and former DNC Chair) Ed Rendell endorsed Hillary Clinton today. He is considered a DPL in the superdelegate world and not a Governor. Barack Obama followed up with a lesser known DPL when Former DNC Chairman Fred Harris from New Mexico endorsed him.

Rendell served as DNC Chairman from 1999 to 2001 and Harris served from 1969 to 1970.
