(CNN) – Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry endorsed Barack Obama's White House bid Wednesday.
"Senator Obama is uniquely positioned to unite our nation and move beyond the divisiveness and partisan skirmishes that too often characterize politics as usual in Washington,” Henry told The Oklahoman.
Henry, currently serving his second term, had said he did not plan to endorse until the party's convention in late August.
Hillary Clinton won Oklahoma on February 5 with 55 percent of the vote.
Henry is one of the party's 720 superdelegates who will ultimately decide the party's nominee. About 300 remain undecided. (Related: Clinton picks up superdelegate)

Good For you.. we'll take it..!
We want a person with substance in the Whitehouse.. NOT LIAR's.. Like the Clinton family..
Yes.. We.. Can.. in 2008
Thank You Honorable Sir! Yes We Can! OBAMA "08"
Great. The tide is turning in the right way.
. . . Hillary's balloons have flown and the confetti has fallen. Now
reality sets in.
Yes We can!!!!!!!!!!
ummm his state easily went to clinton.........and yet he votes for Obama. Just like Richardson, Kennedy etc. These superdelegates need to be listening to THEIR voters!
When President Obama is sworn in in January, Hillary will still be running.
. . .Gee, the tide IS turning.
Nothing to loose since he is termed out, his state went to Clinton, you would think he would be wise and go with her!
Traitor...another white man traitor
another superdelegate after a major primary. who is the big winner
One Super a day over the next two weeks will erase Clinton's gains in Penn.
After Hillary won PA???
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY GOV. HENRY!
THAT HAD GIVEN UP
TO THE P`RESSURE
OF THE OBAMA´S CLAN
Duh. Oklahoma is one of the most homophobic states in the country so supporting someone who rubs elbows with Rev Write and Donnie McGlurkin does not surprise me.
so why should superdelegates back the person with the most votes if superdelegates on Obama's side don't think so?
Those spent millions in Pennsylvania will eventually pay off for Obama as the superdelegates slowly, but surely move his way. They shall not be fooled, and truly see the error of Hillary's ways.
. . . Bravo Gov. Henry. Now that we're out of Pennsylvania, the in touch
voters are standing up again.
Yes we Can.
Hillary also lost some states where superdelegates endorsed her. Thank you, Gov. Henry.
Thank you senator. Keep it coming!
Obama for 08
Yet another person going against the will of their states majority vote. Ridiculous.
He needs to have a chat with Nancy Pelosi – didn't she say the superdelegates should support the will of the people?
So much for following the voters in your constituency. I'm sure Sen Obama won't refuse the endorsement because the people of Oklahoma said they wanted Sen Clinton.
super delegates should stop this now.
Hillary just wants to distroy Obama chances of winning the white house because she is not going to get the nomination unless they give it to her.
You suck! You did not endorse Barack when he needed you, and you let Billary win. Now you see the rising sun and bow to it, just like other "super" delegates like Richardson.
