Wilder Stays Out of Presidential Race - For Now
For those of you wondering where former Virginia Gov. L. Douglas Wilder stands on the presidential race, don't believe everything you read.
Wilder, a Democrat who is now the mayor of Richmond, issued a press release today to announce that he has not endorsed U.S. Sen. Barack Obama as reported in Jet magazine this week. In fact, he has not endorsed anyone at all. Not yet anyway.
"A report in Jet magazine stating that I have endorsed Sen. Barack Obama for President is incorrect,'' Wilder wrote in a brief statement. "While I previously have said kind things about the senator, I have made no endorsement of any candidate at this time."
No word on when - or if - the nation's first black governor will endorse any candidate before Virginia's Feb. 12 primary.
