Wyoming governor endorses Obama

(CNN) - Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal is backing Barack Obama's White House bid, the Illinois senator's campaign said Wednesday.

"Senator Obama is the Democratic candidate with the openness, honesty and skill to end this vicious cycle of business as usual," Freudenthal said in a statement released by the campaign.

Obama won the Wyoming Democratic caucus on March 8 with 61 percent of the vote.

    The Wave is coming towards our side!!! The wave of uniting the party!!! Its a shame that the 'establishment' does not want the Clintons back in control.

    Google...Paul vs Clinton the documentary...she's divisive and if you don't think the Republicans will open her up just let her steal the nomination...

    I guess the govenor hasn't being following the resko mess, obama is up to his neck in fund raisers and giving favors for these men who are now up on money laundering . influence peddling etc. honest????????? not by a long shot , and he says he will still be friends with tony resko and his minister. the negativity and race card is being played by him he learned well after hearing his minister speak for 20 years. what a mess your election will be when the republicans bring it all out and win.

    These deligates are looking at the big picture, and making their own choices. This party is slowly comming together for the good of not only the party, but of the people as well. Obama is clearly looked upon as a great leader , someone who will unite this country and tackle it's issues. Smart move on these deligates.

    It looks like Obama was right. YES WE CAN!!! People are finally realizing that Obama is a person of strength, honestly, loyalty, and character. He stands up for what he believes in, fights for the rights of ALL OF US, and is not afraid to work against all odds. Any time adversity comes his way, he sets the record straight, unites us as a country, keeps us on track to finally change the way we operate as a whole, and will finally give us a voice. That's what you call a true leader!

    Wyoming – the first state to give women the right to vote. Wyoming – a state which appears more color-blind than Pennsylvania, birthplace of our federal government. Way to go, Wyoming!!!

    I think the Superdelegates plan to endorse Obama one day at a time until the Pennsylvania primary...just so his name stays in the media and psychologically destroy Clinton's ambitions. They can't come at her all at once, she might do something stupid! Like run as an Independent! She will stop at nothing!

    Go Obama!

    Good news. Sure hope Pennsylvania goes well for Obama. Only by losing the next few primaries will Hillary finally get the message.

    Oh wow, another meaningless endorsement from an official in a state that Obama has no chance of winning in November.

    No you can't.

    I am glad to see more and more superdelegates are coming out in favor of Obama. I think more than anything else, this will help Clinton make her mind to quit the race she cannot possibly win as soon as possible.

    Obama needs time to not only plan for battling McCain in November, but he also needs time to heal the wounds Clinton has opened since the beginning of this campaign.

    Didn't you get Hillary's memo? Wyoming doesn't count, it's a caucus state...uh

    Didn't you get Hillary's memo? Obama's cousin Cheney has Wyoming rigged for Obama...uh

    Didn't you get Hillary's memo? Wyoming's a red state, Obama'll never win it...uh

    Give her time, she'll think of something else.
