(CNN) - Barack Obama's campaign announced Wednesday Indiana Rep. Baron Hill has endorsed the Illinois senator - the fourth new superdelegate the campaign has announced in the last 24 hours.

"If we are going to develop real solutions for Hoosier families, for America’s families, we have to move past the partisan gridlock," Hill said in a statement released by the Obama campaign. "I believe both Senator Clinton and Senator Obama want to do that and I believe both are formidable candidates. But, I also believe that only one of them truly can."

The Clinton campaign has announced three new superdelegates in the last 24 hours. More than 300 have yet to publicly back a candidate.

    Let's all Democrats try and be civil to each other. Just in case you don't agree. It speaks volumes that the Rep. Hill introduced Senator Clinton on Friday and endores Senator Obama on Wednesday. What does that tell you?

    I cant believe the support Billary still gets.Comon people.She has done nothing but LIE all this time.And now she is recommending a summer tax freeze, which is gonna come back and bite us. She lied to get our money, while she has more than 100 million of "her" money tucked away under her bed.She is involved in a Civil fraud case and if proven gulity, will send here behind bars for 5 years.And her pastor, well havent all of us seen enough child molestors.

    I respect all women and believe both sexes are equal.

    All you Dem. women voters out there – Please take a moment to analyze the situation.Please don't vote just because she is a woman.Vote for her if you think she is a qualified candidate.Our lives and our childrens are at stake here.This is one of the most important decisions we make for ourselves and the rest of the world.

    How can you expect someone who lies(sniper fire) and justifies it blaming her tiredness to take that "3 am" call?
