Pressure is mounting for some Democratic party leaders to jump to Bernie Sanders after having already pledged their support to Hillary Clinton.
The Vermont senator has boasted that these party officials, who as superdelegates are not bound to a Democratic presidential candidate based on their state’s primary votes, will turn to him as he continues to win states like the three he took handily over the weekend.
While he has won over a few undecided superdelegates in the past few days, there’s no public evidence that Clinton superdelegates, most of whom lined up for her months ago, plan to defect from the front-runner. That includes delegates who are in states that Sanders won, sometimes handily.
“I still support her 100 percent,” New Hampshire superdelegate and former state party chairwoman Kathleen Sullivan told The Hill.
