Baldwin sticking to Clinton

Rep. Tammy Baldwin hasn't changed her mind about casting her Superdelegate vote for Hillary Clinton.

Other members of Congress who endorsed Clinton early but whose districts have since voted for Obama have come under increasing pressure to "keep faith with their constituents" by casting their superdelegate votes for the Illinois senator.

Indeed, Obama got more votes in the 2nd District than he did in any other Wisconsin congressional district.

That has not changed Baldwin's stance. She continues to identify as a Clinton-committed superdelegate.

Her office said last week that there has been no indication from the congresswoman of a wavering in her support for the senator...

But Baldwin has heard from constituents who think she should shift.
I don't think it means that much. I just think it's an interesting side-story.
