Minn. Superdelegate backs Obama
One of Minnesota’s last uncommitted Democratic superdelegates has decided to back Barack Obama, according to the Star Tribune.
Nancy Larson, of Dassel, told the Associated Press she decided to support Obama because his campaign will bring new people into the political process. She believes he has the best chance of winning the election, according to the Star Tribune.
“It's looking more and more that the one person who can do it is Barack Obama," Larson said. (Star Tribune)
Larson said the choice wasn’t easy; she was lobbied by heavily by Obama’s and Hillary Clinton’s campaigns. Larson joins eight other Minnesota superdelegates who are supporting Obama, three are backing Clinton, according to the Star Tribune.
With Larson’s announcement Collin Peterson is the only uncommitted superdelegate in the state, reports the Star Tribune.
