Undecided Idaho superdelegate comes down on Clinton’s side

Bernie Sanders won an overwhelming majority of Idaho delegates in the Demcratic caucus, but superdelegate Van Beechler publicly announced herself undeclared. She remained undecided until Tuesday night’s vote for the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, when she cast her vote for Clinton. “I was on the fence,” Beechler said.
