Cranwell Staying Out of Obama-Clinton Battle
Virginia Democratic Party Chairman C. Richard Cranwell, one of the state's last remaining undeclared superdelegates, said today he won't be throwing his support behind a presidential candidate until after the state party convention in mid June.
Cranwell, who initially backed former senator John Edwards, said he has to chair the convention so he doesn't want to be seen as a supporter of either Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY.) or Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.)
Besides, Cranwell adds, he's still hasn't made up his mind on whether he wants Clinton or Obama to win the nomination."Really, I haven't," he adds.
Six superdelegates from Virginia back Obama. Five are supporting Clinton. Five, including Cranwell and Sen. James Webb (D), remain uncommitted
