North Carolina Governor To Endorse Hillary
It’s not official yet, but this from the AP:
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – A person close to North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley tells The Associated Press he will endorse Hillary Rodham Clinton for president.
Easley is a Democratic superdelegate who has served as the state’s governor for two terms. His decision comes despite several recent polls showing Clinton trailing rival Barack Obama ahead of the state’s May 6 primary.
Easley would be just the second superdelegate from North Carolina to endorse Clinton. Six of the state’s 17 superdelegates have endorsed Obama.
More than anything, this adds another superdelegate to the Clinton roster, and I think that makes 3 since Pennsylvania.
