Baldacci Endorses Obama 

Gov. John Baldacci is endorsing Sen. Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic nominee for


Maine’s governor made his announcement after Hillary Rodham

Clinton ended her campaign for the presidency and told supporters

to unite behind Obama. Baldacci previously endorsed Clinton.

After the party’s state convention last weekend, the breakdown

of Maine’s delegates and superdelegates to the Democratic National

Convention was Obama 22 to Clinton’s 10. Baldacci’s announcement

throws another delegate in Obama’s column.

In a written statement, Baldacci says Clinton ran a strong

campaign and broke down barriers against long odds, leaving the

country better for her efforts. But Baldacci says now it’s time to

work together to put Barack Obama in the White House.
