Nebraska Superdelegate for Obama
Democratic State Chairman Steve Achelpohl of Omaha has joined a flurry of superdelegates moving to Sen. Barack Obama’s side.
In announcing his endorsement, the Obama campaign released a statement from Achelpohl citing the senator’s ability to “put states like Nebraska in play” during the presidential election this fall.
“Sen. Obama continues to transcend ‘politics as usual’ and focus on the issues that really matter to American families and workers,” Achelpohl said.
“Our party can unite behind Sen. Obama and his positive campaign.”
Obama, he said, will “unite Americans from all walks of life behind his historic movement for change.”
