Suerpdelegate Meetings
(2008-02-23)
(WOUB) - Democratic bigwigs in Ohio have been subject to a barrage of phone calls and one-on-one meetings with candidates, their spouses and high-profile surrogates.

The state's 21 so-called superdelegates could prove crucial in the race between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama for the party's nomination.

Cincinnati Mayor Mike Mallory got a 30-minute phone call from former President Bill Clinton while out to dinner, making the case for his wife's presidential bid.

And Congressman Tim Ryan said he had to bob and weave when asked for his endorsement this week during Hillary Clinton's visit to his northeast Ohio district.

Clinton has four endorsements compared with two for Obama among the 21 superdelegates in Ohio -- where the primary will be held March 4th.
