Washington (AP) Barack Obama has won the endorsement of four new superdelegates, helping push him toward the Democratic presidential nomination, including a backer of rival Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The support comes the day after Obama's victory in North Carolina and closer than expected finish behind Clinton in indiana.

Among the supporters is Virginia's Jennifer Mcclellan, who used to support Clinton.

The Obama campaign announced three other supporters North Carolina Democratic party chairman Jerry Meek, North Carolina democratic national committee member Jeanette Council, and California DNC member Inola Henry.

Clinton picked up another delegate in rep. Heath Shuler, who said he would support whoever won his district in North Carolina.

Meanwhile, aides say Obama is ready to start mapping out a strategy for the general election, even as he gets set to campaign in the few remaining democratic primaries.
