“We’re honored to have the support from these party leaders who know that Hillary Clinton is the only candidate who can stop Republicans from ripping away all of the progress we’ve made,” said Marlon Marshall, Hillary for America Director of State Campaigns and Political Engagement. “These DNC members will only strengthen our grassroots-driven campaign and help us engage even more voters across Pennsylvania in order to win the April 26th Primary.”

Mayor Michael Nutter (previously announced)
These endorsements are particularly valuable for Clinton because of each of them is a superdelegate. As we recounted earlier this month, the DNC members make up 13 of PA’s 21 superdelegates. The other eight delegate spots were allocated by whether the state has a Democratic Governor or Senators as well as the number of Democratic Congressmen. Gov. Rendell also has a vote as a former party chair.
Therefore, we can conclude that Clinton has already secured at least 17 of the Keystone State’s 21 superdelegates.
