ObamaAccording to a press release issued by the Barack Obama campaign today, Senator Obama has picked up the endorsements of a majority of the Democratic-NPL legislators in the North Dakota state legislature.  Here's a snippet from the release: 

BISMARCK - The Obama campaign announced today that a majority of Democrats from both houses of the North Dakota legislature have endorsed Barack Obama.  This announcement comes just days before the February 5 Caucus in North Dakota.

The new endorsements came overwhelmingly from legislators who had previously supported Senator Edwards.  A majority of Edwards’ supporters who serve in the legislature are now supporting Barack Obama.

Senate endorsers include Senate Democratic Leader David O'Connell of Lansford and Sen. Richard Marcellais of Belcourt, a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians.  House endorsers include Rep. Jasper Schneider of Fargo, a Democratic candidate for North Dakota Insurance Commissioner.  All three were active in Edwards' campaign.

“I am extremely impressed with the Obama campaign's commitment to North Dakota,” Senator David O'Connell said.  “Their outreach effort in the state is unprecedented.  The Obama campaign is a volunteer-driven organization, and they have put tremendous resources into our state.  Obama’s success here demonstrates his crossover appeal to Republicans and independents.  In his 20-years in public service, he has brought members of all parties and all ideologies together to get things done.  That’s how we’ve always tackled problems in the heartland, and that’s how Barack Obama will confront the challenges we face as President.”

Press Release

Obama also picked up the endorsement of former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker.  Read the story on that in the Wall Street Journal.  (Props to Marty who sent a note saying he'd read about this at Rob's site.)

Congressman Earl Pomeroy will be hosting Obama rallies in Bismarck and Fargo on Monday.  Click here for details about those events.

Everyone, please vote for Sen. Obama. We can't miss this chance to steer the country back on the right track. We don't have time for any more wasted years of co-Clinton scandals, while America sinks deeper. I'm counting on North Dakotans to do the right thing. Thanks, Janice

Although I plan to vote Debacrat all the way down the line, this is interesting!!
I found this the other day on Youtube, you have to watch past about the first 4 to 5 minutes of it and you will start seeing the point of it. Hillary Clinton, and her whole system is a fake, just watch the first and second part. She should not be running at all, she should be facing criminal chages if all this is proven to be true! Watch both part 1 and part 2 if you can. All we can hope is Barack Obama wins.
