Connecticut Democratic delegates overwhelmingly back Clinton
HARTFORD — Hillary Clinton is the overwhelming favorite so far among Democratic insiders in Connecticut.
An Associated Press survey of the state’s 15 superdelegates shows all but two are backing the former secretary of state for president. Of the two remaining superdelegates, one said he’s undecided while the other said her position as national president of the Federation of Democratic Women prevents her from making an endorsement before the national convention.
Connecticut superdelegates include the state’s top Democrats, including the entire congressional delegation and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. Malloy has campaigned in New Hampshire for Clinton.
AP reporters received responses from 80 percent of the 712 superdelegates and 359 plan to support Clinton; 210 were uncommitted; eight backed Sen. Bernie Sanders and two supported former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.
