    Presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton has picked up another superdelegate in Arkansas who said he'll support the state's former first lady. Land Commissioner Mark Wilcox, who was selected last month as the Arkansas Democratic Party's last remaining superdelegate to the national convention, said Monday he's supporting the New York senator. Wilcox says the only way he'd change his mind is if Clinton drops out of the race before the convention this summer. Wilcox's support gives Clinton 11 of the state's 12 superdelegates, members of Congress and other party leaders who are not selected in primaries and caucuses. The superdelegates supporting Clinton include Governor Beebe and Senators Mark Pryor and Blanche Lincoln. The state's three Democratic congressmen, Marion Berry, Mike Ross and Vic Snyder, are also superdelegates backing Clinton. Lottie Shackelford, a vice chair of the Democratic National Committee, is the only superdelegate from Arkansas not committed to any candidate. Clinton, who served as the state's first lady for 12 years, overwhelmingly defeated Democratic rival Barack Obama in the Arkansas presidential primary in February. Clinton won 70 percent of the state's vote to Obama's 26 percent, according to the certified results.
