The Democratic presidential race is effectively over, but Bernie Sanders picked up another superdelegate over the weekend.
Jean Lemire Dahlman, a Montana Democratic National Committeewoman, plans to support Sanders as a superdelegate at the Democratic National Convention this summer in Philadelphia, both the Sanders campaign and Montana Democratic Party confirmed on Monday.
Dahlman had been waiting until Montana’s June 7 primary to pick a candidate. Sanders defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton 51 percent to 44 percent in the Montana primary.
Dahlman is the only one of six Montana superdelegates to back a candidate. The others, including Gov. Steve Bullock and Sen. Jon Tester, have opted to stay neutral.
Dahlman’s support won’t make a huge difference. Clinton has beaten Sanders to the required number of delegates needed to clinch the nomination. According to the Associated Press delegate tracker, Clinton has a total of 2,784 delegates overall — a figure which includes 581 superdelegates — while Sanders has 48 superdelegates among his total of 1,877 delegates.
