Representative Peter DeFazio Endorses Obama

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

The night's not over as Representative Peter DeFazio (OR-4) endorses Barack Obama.

Clinton's superdelegate lead is now down to 6.5 votes.

Tonight Rep. Peter DeFazio became Oregon's third Democratic congressman to endorse Sen.Barack Obama, putting the Illinois politician one delegate closer to the presidential nomination.

DeFazio said that Obama, who will begin a two-day campaign trip to the state Friday morning, "represents our best chance of winning in November."

"We must not allow Senator McCain to continue the failures of the Bush foreign policy, war in Iraq and disastrous economic policies," DeFazio added. - The Oregonian
