Jim Leaman, a Superdelegate, Endorses Obama

Tim Craig

Jim Leaman, executive director of the Virginia AFL-CIO, was one of 26.5 superdelegates who endorsed Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) in a joint statement tonight after the polls closed in South Dakota and Montana.

"I believe that Senator Obama is the right person, in the right place and at the right time to change politics in Washington from strict partisan warfare to one of jointly solving America's problems," Leaman said.

Sen. James Webb (D-Va), Virginia Democratic Party Chairman C. Richard Cranwell and former Labor Secretary Alexis Herman are now the only undeclared superdelegates from Virginia.

Meanwhile, Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D), who endorsed Obama more than a year ago, issued a statement urging all Democrats to "unite solidly" behind Obama to "move this country forward."
