Exclusive: New Mexico Super Supports Obama
Sen. Barack Obama picked up the support of another superdelegate Friday when Laurie Weahkee, a Native American voting activist in New Mexico, threw her support to the Illinois senator. "We need to get on with the campaign against McCain," Weakhee said in an exclusive interview with our sister site, The New Mexico Independent. She praised Clinton but said Obama’s nomination was now inevitable. "Throughout Obama’s campaign he’s proven to be an honest and genuine leader and to me that’s key to improving relations between tribal nations and the U.S. government," she said.
