UPDATED: A superdelegate tires of the battle

Posted by David Postman

Washington State’s uncommitted superdelegates seem content to stay that way for a bit longer, at least according to this story by Ralph Thomas.

"I haven't changed my view at all that we should let the states play themselves out," said U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen of Lake Stevens.

But one superdelegate may be getting ready to do something, though I’m not sure what. Look at this from yesterday’s New York Daily News:

"It's time for us to end this," added Dwight Pelz, Washington State party chairman and undecided superdelegate. "The candidates are tearing each other apart, and it's not good for the party. I think we need to have a candidate."

I’ve asked Pelz if that means he’s ready to commit to a candidate. I'll let you know what I hear.

MORE: Pelz spokesman Kelly Steele says the chairman believes superdelegates should act to end the fighting. But he’s not ready to express a preference.

He does not think it’s fair for the chair of the state party to take sides while we’re still in the progress of choosing delegates.
