Obama Picks Up 2 More Superdelegates

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Democrats, Oklahoma, Super Delegates!!!, Wisconsin

They seem to come in pairs of two lately, don’t they?

DNC member Lena Taylor of Wisconsin…

State Sen. Lena Taylor from Milwaukee announced her support for Obama on Wednesday afternoon. Late Tuesday night University of Wisconsin-Madison student Awais Khaleel announced his endorsement for Obama on a YouTube video.

That makes 11 superdelegates in Wisconsin for Obama with just two for New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. Three superdelegates remain undecided. They are U.S. Sens. Herb Kohl, Russ Feingold and Feingold staffer Paula Zellner.

…And Mike Morgan of Oklahoma…

Morgan was a supporter of John Edwards for the Democratic nomination before Edwards suspended his campaign. Edwards on Wednesday also announced his support for Obama.

Morgan says he believes Obama will be a plus for legislative candidates across the country as the Democratic nominee.

He says Obama is “creating enthusiasm from voters unlike anything we have seen in our lifetime.”

Post-Pennsylvania Delegate Pickups:
Obama – 58.5
Clinton – 14.5

Total Superdelegates:
Obama – 289.5
Clinton – 273.5
