Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama made another campaign stop in Indiana on Wednesday. This one in New Albany.
Obama and his rival for the nomination, Hillary Clinton, have their sights set on Indiana’s 72 pledged delegates in the May 6th primary.
But in a town hall meeting at Indiana University Southeast, the Illinois Senator said he’s also hoping to win the support of the state’s superdelegates, those elected officials and party leaders who can get behind the candidate of their choice.
“I do think that these elections we’ve been doing should count for something,” said Obama. “And so if we’ve won the most delegates from the voters, it seems to me it might be a good idea to make me the nominee.”
Indiana currently has 12 superdelegates. A so-called “add-on” delegate will be named in June.
Hillary Clinton campaigned Wednesday in Indianapolis.
