Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton has picked up the backing of Rhode Island Gov. Bruce G. Sundlun for the Democratic presidential nomination. Aides to Sundlun said Tuesday that the governor sent a telegram to Clinton last Friday promising his support. That came after New York Gov. Mario M. Cuomo said that he would not seek the nomination. "The governor has worked with Gov. Clinton on occasion and has a very good relationship with him," said R. David Cruise, Sundlun's chief of staff. "He's a moderate."
