Obama gains support, now leads among elected superdelegates

April 17, 2008 |  6:34 am

For those of you keeping score, Barack Obama has now moved past Hillary Clinton in terms of announced support from elected superdelegates (governors, senators and representatives).

He picked up three more on Wednesday.

Obama still trails Clinton slightly in overall superdelegates, 257-234.

But in overall delegates he leads by 141, 1,650-1,509. This according to the authoritative NBC count.

Still, not enough for anyone's victory. Next stop: Pennsylvania come Tuesday.
