One for Barack, one for Hillary
When Ohio Democratic Party chairman Chris Redfern announced his picks for the two open Ohio super-delegate slots, it was pretty well a lock that he would pick a Barack Obama supporter and a Hillary Clinton partisan.
That expectation has become reality.
It didn't take long after the May 10 Ohio Democratic Party convention, when the two superdelegates were approved, for Dave Regan, president of SEIU District 1199, to come out for Obama. His union has been on board with Obama for some time now.
This morning, the other super-delegate chosen by Redfern, Cleveland lawyer Craig Bashein, came out for Hillary.
That brings the Ohio superedelegate count to eight for Clinton, seven for Obama and seven up for grabs.
