Cheyene, Wy – Governor Dave Freudenthal has finally announced that he will endorse Barack Obama for president. The governor says he intends to support Obama in his role as a superdelegate for the Democratic party. He says he hopes Obama can help put an end to the playground-style bickering in Washington.
Freudenthal says Obama has a good understanding of Western issues, especially of the energy industry. He says he's also impressed that the candidate is consistent in his statements. For example, the Governor says that Obama told him privately that nuclear power must be part of the energy solution. Obama has made the same statement publicly.
