Rumor Watch: N.J. superdelegate leaning to Clinton

One uncommitted superdelegate from New Jersey appears to be leaning toward Hillary Clinton, according to recent comments he made to close friends who have communicated his position to PolitickerNJ.com. Red Bank resident Philip Murphy, the Democratic National Committee Finance Chairman and a former Managing Director at Goldman Sachs (where he was aligned with the faction that essentially tossed Jon Corzine as Chairman in 1999), has reportedly told at least three individuals that he would likely vote for Clinton over Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention – if the nomination comes down to a contest in Denver.

New Jersey has two other uncommitted superdelegates: Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who is trying hard to avoid any conversation that includes the Clinton/Obama contest, and Rep. Rush Holt.
