Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are waiting to see whether those undecided superdelegates will end up in their corners.

One of those superdelegates is Congressman Joe Donnelly.

In a statement released on Wednesday, Donnelly says: “I have not yet endorsed either candidate who is seeking the Democratic nomination. I do not know on what date I will endorse, but when I do, I will back the candidate I think would make the best president.”

Meantime, NewsCenter 16 spoke with Donnelly Tuesday night about his superdelegate status.

“To be honest with you, I’m still at the Capitol. We just finished up our last vote. So I’m working on a couple things in the office and I’m a lot more focused on my congressional duties than on the presidential election,” explained Donnelly.

Donnelly accepts contribution from Obama

Rep. Joe Donnelly has thus far remained an uncommitted superdelegate but has reportedly accepted $7,500 from Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign while not yet accepting any funds from Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Does this demonstrate Donnelly’s support for Obama?

Dyngus Day: Donnelly remains neutral on Dems’ presidential race

March 26, 2008

Check out a series of reports, including photos on the Dyngus Day festivities over at progressivessouthbend.org.

For his part, Rep. Joe Donnelly chose to withhold an endorsement for Sen. Hillary Clinton who was being represented by her husband (you know who) and daughter. He claims he will remain neutral in the race but will fully support the eventual nominee no matter who he or she turns out to be.

Let’s just hope that given his  “independence” of the Democratic Party that he doesn’t wind up joining “independent” Joe Lieberman in support of John McCain.
