Miami superdelegate makes it official: She's backing Hillary Clinton

A Democratic superdelegate from Miami-Dade County made it official Wednesday that she's backing Hillary Clinton for president.

State Attorney Katherine Fernández Rundle, one of the longest-serving local elected officials, is a Florida member of the Democratic National Committee.

"Secretary Clinton is the most qualified to lead from day one and has the experience to confront our domestic and international challenges," Fernández Rundle said in a statement. "She has the energy and commitment to continue to move our country forward as we tackle issues from criminal justice reform and gun violence that continues to tear apart our youth, to closing the salary wage gap that American families face every day."

Superdelegates aren't bound by popular primary results. But Clinton won Florida in a rout on March 15.

Fernández Rundle was re-elected without opposition last month.
