House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn is
endorsing Barack Obama for president.
The South Carolina congressman told The Associated Press on
Monday that he has started to phone the state's superdelegates to
ask them to get behind one candidate. When asked whether that
candidate was Obama, Clyburn said yes.
Clyburn says he'll make a formal endorsement announcement
Tuesday.
The backing of the highest-ranking black member of Congress
comes more than four months after Obama won the Democratic primary
in South Carolina.
Obama needs just 44 delegates to get the 2,118 that are needed
to secure the presidential nomination. Hillary Rodham Clinton would
need about 200.
