Obama Picks Up Virginia Superdelegate

Tim Craig

Jerome Wiley Segovia, a superdelegate from Virginia, announced today he is supporting Illinois Sen. Barack Obama's bid for the Democratic nomination for president.

"While sharing the valuable international experience of spending a portion of my formative years overseas in a similar fashion as Senator Obama, I am excited to add my support to a campaign that has clearly demonstrated a commitment to an inclusive national field campaign, has shattered all previous campaign fundraising records, and is supportive of alternative sources of energy to begin to solve our energy crisis," said Segovia, a member of the Democratic National Committee.

Of the 16 superdelegates from Virginia, seven are now backing Obama. Five are supporting Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY). Four, including state party chairman C. Richard Cranwell and Sen. James Webb (D), remain uncommitted.
