The Super Battle Continues
The super delegate continues to evolve today with Marc Ambinder reporting that Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) has picked up the endorsement of Luisette Cabanas, a Puerto Rican superdelegate. Evidently Chelsea Clinton went all the way to Puerto Rico to get it!
Meanwhile, Rep. Lois Capps (D-Calif.) has answered by endorsing Obama, MSNBC reports.
So who gets the edge here? I think Obama. Capps is co-chair of the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues and chair of the Democratic Women’s Working group. Capps assumed her husband’s seat in congress when he passed away in 1997. It should strengthen Obama’s credentials among women’s groups (a Clinton stronghold) while Cabanas is a rather obscure superdelegate.
Today’s super tally: Obama 3, Clinton 2.
