U.S. Rep. Chris Carney noted Friday that Democrats in his northeastern Pennsylvania district supported Clinton by a more than 2-1 margin in the April 22 primary. Carney says, "I will respect their decision."
Carney said earlier he would back the candidate who won the district. The political science professor says he has weighed Clinton and Barack Obama's leadership and calls them "two very strong candidates."
Carney says he met with Clinton on Wednesday and let her know Thursday he is supporting her. Carney is a Democrat representing a historically Republican district. The GOP views him as vulnerable to a fall challenge by business owner Chris Hackett.
