Retired four-start General Wesley Clark ran for president in 2004 and won the primary in Oklahoma, before later getting out of the race. Friday, he was in the Sooner State stumping for Hillary Clinton.

He thanked volunteers in the Oklahoma City office and talked about his confidence in Clinton.

“There’s nobody with more integrity and more courage, more conviction and more passion in this race. But she’s also the only one with the experience and proven track record of making it happen,” General Clark told News 9.

Meanwhile, at least one of Oklahoma's four superdelegates said she supports Bernie Sanders.

Vice Chair of the Oklahoma Democratic Party, Connie Johnson gave his introduction on Saturday in Tulsa. She said the Senator's views fall in line with issues that impact her community.

“And then his stance on a $15 minimum wage I think would be very significant in an economy where income equality is rampant, especially for people who are impacted by the criminal justice system,” she said.
