Two more WA superdelegates go for Obama
With the Democratic race for president decided, two more Washington state superdelegates are lining up behind presumptive nominee Barack Obama.
Former House Speaker Tom Foley and Rep. Jay Inslee say they will support the Illinois senator. Foley had been the last undecided superdelegate in Washington state, while Inslee had previously endorsed New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Foley's wife, Heather, says the former speaker spoke to Clinton's representatives Wednesday night to inform them of his decision. Spokeswoman Christine Hanson Clapp says Inslee spoke to Clinton on Thursday and told her he will formally endorse Obama on Saturday, just after she withdraws from the race .
The announcements by Foley and Inslee bring the total count of superdelegates in Washington state to 13 for Obama and four for Clinton.
