Kentucky has nine superdelegates, with one still to be chosen, and Indiana 11, though it will get at least one more and possibly two.Please, Kentuckians, please, I beg you, make the right decision in May and vote for Sen. Clinton.
In addition to Yarmuth, Chandler and Beshear, the state's superdelegates are state Democratic Party Chairwoman Jennifer Moore; Vice Chairman Nathan Smith; and Democratic National Committee members Terry McBrayer, Moretta Bosley and JoEtta Wickliffe.[...]
In recent weeks, Smith said he has had face-to-face meetings with both Obama and Clinton in which they both argued that they have the best chance of defeating the all-but-certain Republican nominee, U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona, in November.
"I used the opportunity to tell them about the issues that are important for people here," he said, adding that he remains uncommitted.
Smith, who lives in Fort Mitchell, said he'll rely heavily on how the state and Kentucky's 4th Congressional District votes in the primary.
He said he has been treated like royalty when people learn he's a superdelegate -- something that he added he didn't realize himself until just recently. People have asked him to sign autographs and pose for pictures, he said, and his phone has "rung off the hook."
"My high school principal called me to lobby me -- I haven't talked to him in 20 years," he said. "You can't make this stuff up."
