Rep. Jay Inslee, one of the first Washington superdelegates to back Sen. Hillary Clinton for president, will endorse Sen. Barack Obama on Saturday.
Inslee and Clinton spoke by telephone Wednesday night. He’s timing his announcement to coincide with Clinton’s expected declaration of support for Obama on Saturday.
All of this is happening in the wake of Obama gaining enough delegates to clinch the Democratic Party nomination for president.
Meanwhile, Sen. Patty Murray remained mum this morning on if and when she might switch from backing Clinton to supporting Obama.
That didn’t keep her name out of the presidential news cycle. According to Chris Bowers at OpenLeft, a blog that I’m not all that familiar with, Murray’s name is getting spoken in the conversation about possible running mates for Obama.
