Herseth Sandlin Endorses Obama
February 26, 2008, 4:51 PM
Congresswoman Stephanie Herseth Sandlin has decided to endorse Barack Obama for president.
Herseth Sandlin originally endorsed John Edwards, but he withdrew from the Democratic race last month.
Herseth Sandlin says Obama, a senator from Illinois, will capitalize on what South Dakota's communities, families and entrepreneurs have to offer.
Herseth Sandlin says her decision was based primarily on Obama's interest in promoting renewable energies and his interest in talking to her in detail about those issues.
She says Obama's rival, Hillary Clinton, did not talk with her -- but that she had a long, detailed talk with Obama.
She joins the state's other Democrats in supporting Obama.
