Former President Bill Clinton says he’d use his superdelegate vote to support Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders if he wins the nomination, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.
 
Clinton said he did the same thing in 2008 when Barack Obama, then an Illinois senator, beat out his wife Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary.
{mosads}”Last time I did what my candidate asked, I voted for Barack Obama,” Clinton told the Daily News.
  
Some Democratic superdelegates in New York have said they would not change their vote from Hillary Clinton even if she loses the primary, the Daily News reported.
 
Clinton has a lead over Sanders in the race for the nomination, taking 1,712 delegates to Sanders’s 1,011.
 
According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, the former first lady has 51.3 percent support nationally in the Democratic race, with Sanders trailing at 42.3 percent.
