Texas Sen. Leticia van de Putte, a former NCSL president, has endorsed Hillary Clinton. Van de Putte will be a Democratic National Convention co-chair and therefore planned to remain publicly neutral in the race, but she decided to make her preference clear after her two co-chairs, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin, both came out for Obama.
Given her affiliation, perhaps it's not surprising that Van de Putte tells the Denver Post that she expects delegations from Michigan and Florida to be seated at the Dem convention: "Now we've got to figure out how to do a plan B," she said. "I think you'll see a Michigan sign. I think you'll see a Florida sign on that floor." (Hat tip: Grasscatcher.)
