A bloc of seven undecided Senate superdelegates threw their support behind presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) Wednesday afternoon, as Obama consolidated his grip on the nomination.
Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), Tom Carper (D-Del.), Ken Salazar (D-Colo.), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Mary Landrieu (D-La.), Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) and Ben Cardin (D-Md.) issued a joint statement announcing their endorsement.
"As Senators who remained neutral in this contest, we are proud of Senators Obama and Clinton for breaking down barriers that some believed were unbreakable and for inspiring millions in our country to participate in our political process, many for the first time," the statement said.
"Our focus now is on victory in November and on giving Barack Obama every ounce of our support, every bit of our energy, and our total commitment to do everything in our power to win the Presidency."
