Two superdelegates from North Carolina have announced their support for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Reps. Mel Watt and David Price said Wednesday they are backing the Illinois senator.
Six of North Carolina's 17 superdelegates have now endorsed Obama. Only one of the state's superdelegates is backing Hillary Rodham Clinton. Many of the rest have said they likely won't endorse a candidate until after the state's May 6 primary.
Neither Obama or Clinton will be able to clinch the 2,025 delegates needed to win the nomination without support from the party's nearly 800 superdelegates. That group of elected officials and party insiders can vote for whichever candidate they want at the party's convention in Denver.
