THE GROFF/ELLISON POLITICAL REPORT

Showdown Week…Clyburn Endorses

Posted in Uncategorized by groffellison on June 3, 2008

The third highest ranking member of the House of Representatives has finally made his pick…public. 

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) announced this morning on NBC’s Today Show that he was endorsing Sen. Barack Obama.  Saying that Obama is bringing new people to the party and process and has elevated politics. 

The question is will the Clyburn call open the floodgates for superdelegates to follow his lead.  According to the New York Times eight other House and Senate members may endorse today. Obama will need 20 to 25 supers to endorse today to claim victory tonight.     

Today is the last day of presidential primaries with Montana and South Dakota voting.
