HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut’s Democratic Party insiders are sticking with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for president, despite her recent loss in the New Hampshire primary to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

A survey by The Associated Press of the state’s 15 superdelegates to the party’s national convention found all but one are backing Clinton. The 15th delegate, who is national president of the Federation of Democratic Women, is unable to endorse a candidate until after Connecticut’s April 26th primary.

Clinton actually picked up one superdelegate who was undecided at the time of a previous AP survey conducted in November.

Nationally, AP found that Clinton has added to her wide lead in delegates who will decide the party’s presidential nominee. She leads 481-55 over Sanders, according to AP’s count.
