Obama Picks Up Idaho Superdelegate

By  | 

R. Keith Roark, the Idaho Democratic Party chairman, had this to say about his endorsement…

“After several months of careful consideration, I am announcing today that I will cast my vote this August at the Democratic National Convention for the next President of the United States, Senator Barack Obama. I have evaluated the two remaining candidates for our party’s nomination based upon the answers to three critical questions: 1) Who would make the better President of the United of the United States; 2) Who is more electable? 3) Who will run the stronger race in Idaho?

I don’t really think Idaho is going to be in play in November, but stranger things have happened…
