WASHINGTON (CNN) - Oklahoma Democratic Party chairman and uncommitted superdelegate Ivan Holmes will endorse Barack Obama on Tuesday evening, CNN has learned.
Holmes, who has led the state party since 2007, initially supported John Edwards and said he has remained neutral throughout the nomination process because Hillary Clinton won the Oklahoma primary on Super Tuesday.
He told CNN he is making an endorsement today because “I’ve been trying to be sure in my mind it’s over, which it now looks like it is to me.”
Holmes insisted the Democratic party needs to have a nominee in place “so we can get on with McCain and not each other.”
He said he had spoken with Obama over the phone earlier in the day, but he has not yet informed the senator of his final decision.
