Barack Obama came up short in Pennsylvania, but picked up a superdelegate in our state.

Gov. Brad Henry officially threw his support behind Barack Obama in an announcement Wednesday. Henry's support will give Obama three superdelegates from our state. Hillary Clinton has the support of one Oklahoma superdelegate. Another six superdelegates in the Sooner state are still up for grabs.

Clinton won yesterday's Pennsylvania primary with a 10 percent margin over Obama, keeping her in the race for the Democratic nomination.

The Clinton campaign reports more than $2 million in fundraising rolled in just one hour after the networks called Pennsylvania in her favor.  But Barack Obama raised more than $40 million last month.  The numbers suggest the battle between the two could last until the Democratic Convention in August.
