SC Superdelegate Sticks With O'Malley, Keeping Options Open

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP)- A South Carolina superdelegate says he's might look outside the Democratic party now that his candidate, Martin O'Malley, has dropped out of the presidential race.

Boyd Brown told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he can't back Bernie Sanders because of his socialist-leaning views. Brown says he can't support Hillary Clinton because of what he called her lack of "core values."

O'Malley suspended his campaign after a distant third-place finish Monday in Iowa.

Democratic superdelegates can support the candidate of their choice at the party's national convention, regardless of whom voters choose in primaries and caucuses. Brown served two terms in South Carolina's state House and says he remains technically committed to support O'Malley at the convention but could potentially back a Republican candidate in the general election.
