WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic superdelegates in the District of Columbia continue to mirror their counterparts in the rest of the country. Overwhelmingly, they support Hillary Clinton for president, and her lead over Bernie Sanders among the influential party insiders is growing.

A new Associated Press survey of the 25 superdelegates representing the nation’s capital shows that 18 have endorsed Clinton. That’s up from 14 in November, the last time the AP surveyed the superdelegates. Sanders has two superdelegates in the District, up from one in November.

The District’s superdelegates include political strategists, union leaders and power brokers, many of whom have long personal relationships with Clinton. Mayor Muriel Bowser and Attorney General Karl Racine are two of those who’ve committed to her since November.

Nationwide, Clinton has 449 superdelegates to Sanders’ 19.

This story has been corrected to note that Clinton has 449 superdelegates, not 446.
