(CNN) – Pennsylvania AFL-CIO president and superdelegate Bill George announced his support for Hillary Clinton Wednesday.

“Hillary Clinton has the strength and experience to jumpstart the economy and rebuild the middle class,” George said in a statement released by Clinton's presidential campaign. “Working families in Pennsylvania overwhelmingly favored her in last week’s primary, and I feel that she is our strongest candidate to carry Pennsylvania in November and win back the White House.”

George, a Democratic National Committee member since 1996, had been actively courted by Clinton and Democratic rival Barack Obama in advance of his state’s primary last week. Clinton and Obama both addressed the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO convention earlier this month. Clinton defeated Obama in Pennsylvania's April 22 primary.

    Hey CNN, you have failen behind on your Super counters. You keep adding Hillary's but not Obama's. He actually has 246 in his court but you only count 236. What's up with that? Obama is only 286 from nomination. Tick tick tick.

    CNN, the people need more articles about the delegate math and what % clinton needs to win in the remaining primaries. Do not shy away from the truth that obama is way ahead.
