First Read:

The Obama campaign announced three superdelegates — Jeanette Council (NC); Jerry Meek (NC) and Inola Henry (CA) — have pledged support. AP is reporting one more, a switch from Clinton in Virginia, Jennifer McClellan. (We’re working to confirm that and will update.)

The Delegate Counts:
PLEDGED: Obama 1,588-1,422
SUPERDELEGATES: Clinton 273.5-259
OVERALL: 1,847-1.695.5

* Obama is 178 from the Magic Number of 2,025.
* There are 262.5 undeclared superdelegates, including about 50 who are not yet named and will be added on at state conventions or the like.
