Updated: Three New Endorsements for Obama

The News & Observer

U.S. Reps. David Price and Mel Watt will endorse Barack Obama today.

The announcement brings Obama's count of North Carolina superdelegates to six, including U.S. Rep. G.K. Butterfield, former Democratic Party director Everett Ward, party vice chair Dannie Montgomery and lobbyist Joyce Brayboy, who previously worked for Watt.

Hillary Clinton has just one, Charlotte Councilwoman Susan Burgess.

That leaves 14 uncommitted superdelegates in North Carolina, including two who will be named at the state convention and party chairman Jerry Meek, who has said he will remain neutral.

Updated: U.S. Congressman André Carson today announced his support for Senator Barack Obama for president, citing Senator Obama's ability to unite the country and bring needed change for Hoosier families.

"I am proud to support Barack Obama for President because he represents the kind of bold leadership and change that our country desperately needs. I know Senator Obama, like me, is committed to ending the war in Iraq, bringing down gas prices, and creating good jobs here in Indiana, and he has the judgment and courage to solve these problems," Congressman Carson said. "Senator Obama is a fighter for working families, and part of a new generation of leadership that will bring needed change for our country and I am proud to endorse him for president."
