(AP) Half of Utah's four superdelegates to the Democratic National Convention are already lining up to back Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Democratic presidential race.

Superdelegates are delegates to the Democratic National Convention who can support the candidate of their choice, regardless of what happens in the primaries and caucuses.

The Associated Press reached out to all 712 superdelegates around the country and found that 359 have committed to Clinton.

Two of Utah's four superdelegates, party vice chair Breanne Miller and state Rep. Patrice Arent, are backing Clinton.

Party chair Peter Corroon and former chair Wayne Holland both say they don't want to commit to a Democratic contender until they have a better idea about which candidate the rest of Utah's registered Democrats will support.
