Washington's last superdelegates go for Obama

OLYMPIA, Wash. - Two of Washington state's last few undeclared Democratic superdelegates are lining up behind presumptive nominee Barack Obama.

Ed Cote of Vancouver and Sharon Mast of Bellevue are members of the Democratic National Committee. In prepared statements, both superdelegates say the end of the final primaries in South Dakota and Montana means it's time for Democrats to unite behind Obama.

Obama secured the support of enough delegates to win the nomination on Tuesday. His chief rival, Hillary Clinton, hasn't officially conceded defeat yet.

Former U.S. House Speaker Tom Foley is the only Washington superdelegate who hasn't publicly declared how he's voting.
