Senator Brown Endorses Obama
Listen to the Story
Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown announced Thursday that he will endorse Barack Obama for the democratic presidential nomination. He was one of few remaining neutral superdelegates. Brown says he called Senator Hillary Clinton Thursday morning to thank her for her for fighting for middle class issues throughout her campaign.
“In my conversations with Hillary and Barack have been helping them hone in on those issues that really are going to strengthen the middle class in Ohio and our country,” Brown said.
Brown says the long primary season has helped the Democratic Party which he says will now unite behind Obama.
“People are going to start pulling together because the contrast is so clear,” he said.”Barack Obama stands for a different trade policy, a different energy policy, a very different policy in Iraq. John McCain stands for more George Bush, more of the same, more business as usual.” Senator Clinton is expected to suspend her campaign this weekend.
