(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.
personally i like this big rush from supers to get involved...and i'm an obama supporter but i like this on both parts.
Thus demonstrating the political acumen which has resulted in the shabby and reduced state in which unionism finds itself today...
GOOD GOING HRC. LOOKS LIKE ITS GOING TO BE A FIGHT TO THE END. MAY THE BEST LADY WIN. GO HRC.
old girl just won't go away. Hillary go buy a clue. oops..you have 0 campaign funds. maybe you can use that 800,000 that your husband acquired?
you go girl
LOL...this is hilarious!!!!!!!!
Way to join the LOSING TEAM.
YES SHE WILL!!!
awwww. poor Obama and his cult thought they were going to have all the fun today!!!
Why is it that white people with low incomes are referred to as "working families" but black people with low incomes are referred to simply as "black people"? Or sometimes as "ghetto"?
Congrats, although I support Obama.
But KEEP COMING superdelegates! At this rate, this neverending horrendous primary could be over in a week!
Sen Clinton is deceitful and divisive; however, I prefer her to Obama - if a democrat is to be elected (hope not!).
Drip drip drip. Sorry... Thought I was an Obama supporter there for a second.
Hillary Clinton ready to testify on day one...In November...For FEC financing fraud...Peter Paul...ready on day one for pork barrelling party...$2.3 Billion...
I think superdelegates out to choose the candidate with the foresight.
Voting with the people of his state. I'm an Obama supporter, and I can definitely understand and respect that.
This is crazy... Obama then Hillary....
I think they shoudl nerge and forma ticket now!
I would think that his support (AFL-CIO) is a little stronger then the one Obama got from that Iowa guy......
A SD from a real state. Obama is getting his sd from republican states and states that dont matter. Think , he is running on the wrong ticket.
She's definitely on a roll. She started out even or a little behind in Indiana, last poll has her ahead. In NC, she was 24 points down a few weeks ago, that has been cut in half (which, if you subscribe to Obama logic, constitutes a "huge victory").
Obamabots, if you don't get to 2,025, you've won nothing, remember that.
Hillary – Excellant!
Obama – Bogus!
One for you one for me
it is really coming down to the wire
another lobbyist. Bill George is out of touch. your carreer is over because clinton legacy is done. therefore, you are going along with them.
Since PA, Clinton has picked up 5. Obama has picked up 9.
Thats about 2 to 1 ratio. You do the math.
If she cares about the party, she should get out gracefully right now.
Too little too late.
