Hillary Adds Another AFL-CIO Superdelegate

0

This time from Connecticut:

John Olsen, president of the Connecticut AFL-CIO and a super-delegate, is expected to announce Thursday his support for Hillary Rodham Clinton.

His announcement follows a commitment to Clinton by Bill George, the president of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, who also is a super-delegate.

So that’s 10 to 7 in Obama’s favor post-PA in superdelegate pickups. I had previously said it was 10 to 5, but I had missed Ike Skelton. Here’s the list.
