U.S. Rep. Brian Baird Endorses Barack Obama

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Brian Baird is endorsing Barack Obama.

Baird joins three other “superdelegates” who have endorse the Illinois senator: Gov. Chris Gregoire; U.S. Rep. Adam Smith, his state chairman; and Pat Notter, a member of the Democratic National Committee.

Eight other superdelegates remain uncommitted. Hillary Clinton has the support of five of the state’s superdelegates.

In announcing his endorsement Friday, Baird cites Obama’s “ability to move Americans past the issues that divide us and unite our country for change.”
