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 endorsements just keep coming. Talk about momentum! When did the last new endorsement for Hillary take place?

    Another loser from yet another inconsequential state. The fulcrum of national elections is the combined outcome of Ohio, Florida,Pennsylvania, Texas and California. And, by the way, white voters do matter. Thus, an Obama nomination is certain doom for the Democrats in November.

    Yet another endorsement that the Clintons will say does not matter.

    Its important to note that the DEMOCRATIC governor of the state of Wyoming. You know the state that doesn't count because it only elects Republicans..... I am from Wyoming and Dave has large support exactly because he is beyond simple partisan labels. Reminds me of someone else I know....

    I under estimated this...I stated one or two a week till NC, but this is 4 in a weeks time. Casey, Freudenthal, Hamilton and Klobuchar. Bye, Bye Clintons...get ready to hear the fat lady sing.
    But wait...we can still let Penn, NC, Indiana, .Dakota, West Virgina, Kentucy,Oregon, PuertoRico, Montana, Guam....

  10. Anyone but Obamination

    Never heard of him, I just hope he only gets less then 9000 votes for re-election, that is how many in Wyoming counted in the whole state. Caucuses should be out-lawed....

    The Governor of a state with a population of three! Way to go! His endorsement will certainly get at least three votes.

    I would like someone to explain to me this entire issue of “Disenfranchising” voters. According to the Clinton camp, the people of Florida and Michigan will be “disenfranchised” their delegates are not seated and their voices are not heard. Okay, I understand that part of the argument, that we in America believe that people have a right to vote and the results of that vote should be binding and absolute.
    What I don’t understand is the second part of the discussion, and that is regarding the role of the superdelegates. If you agree with the above stated argument, then how can you argue that the superdelegates should OVERTURN and IGNORE those same voices and wills of the voters of the entire nation? Taking both sides of this argument seems like hypocrisy to me. If the will of the votes is supreme, then you cannot then argue the point that the superdelegates should overturn that same will of the voters.

    Great News for Obama!

    We really need those Superdelegates to come over to OBAMA camp and start uniting this party before it's too late.

    Republicans are on vacation........have too many time on their hands
    to play with against the democratic party!

    What happens when blood is in the water...? Shark attacks!

    Senator Clinton needs to call it quits for the good of the party, rather than pursing personal ambition.

    We are tired of the Bush and the Clinton administration, they are not the only group of people who are qualify for the job of President!

    America lets choose someone different this time. Yes... we can do it!

    I'd bet that if soooo many Superdelegates didn't feel beholden to the Clintons and indebted for political favors, they would've followed their hearts and heads a long time ago and came down on the side of Obama. (The simply better candidate.)
