Virginia Superdelegate Backs Obama

June 2, 2008

A Virginia superdelegate committed to Barack Obama today as the Democrats' presidential nomination fight winds to a close. Jerome Wiley Segovia, a member of the Democratic National Committee, announced early today he was in Obama's camp.

Four other Virginia Democratic insiders will help decide as superdelegates who runs against Republican John McCain this fall, and they plan to stay quiet at least through the primary contests on Tuesday.

Obama leads Hillary Clinton in delegates going into the final primaries in Montana and South Dakota.

Senator Jim Webb, Virginia Democratic chairman Richard Cranwell,
state union leader Jim Leaman and DNC member Alexis Herman are the
Virginia superdelegates who wouldn't state a preference today.

Leaman said he'll make his choice known after the polls in
Montana and South Dakota close.
