Of Idaho’s Dem super-delegates, one has committed to Hillary Clinton, other three uncommitted

Here’s a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Only one of Idaho's four Democratic superdelegates has declared support for Hillary Clinton. An Associated Press survey found that the state's remaining three superdelegates are currently uncommitted in their public support. Clinton is seeking the party's nomination over U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley. Superdelegates are Democratic National Convention delegates who can support the candidate of their choice, regardless of what happens in primaries and caucuses. They make up about 30 percent of the delegates needed to clinch the nomination. DNC member Carolyn Boyce says she supports Clinton because of her experience and electability. Uncommitted superdelegates include state Democratic Party Chairman Bert Marley, state Democratic Party Vice Chairwoman Jeanne Buell and DNC member Pete Gertonson.
