THE GROFF/ELLISON POLITICAL REPORT

High Ranking Congressman To Endorse

Posted in Uncategorized by groffellison on May 29, 2008

After refusing to endorse during his state’s high profile primary in January Congressman James Clyburn (D-SC) will announce his choice for President on Tuesday at 11am eastern from the Capitol when the last primaries in Montana and South Dakota are underway. 

Clyburn, the highest ranking African American in Congress and the Majority Whip, has said he did not want “…to interject myself into the process…” as he was trying to push legislation through the Congress. 

However “…he knows exactly who he will support.  ‘I voted’ in the South Carolina primary, he said, smiling. ‘I’m not undecided, just unpledged.'”

The top two ranking House members are also undedcided.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer are also uncommitteed but Pelosi is intent on ending the primary before it reaches the convention.
