Indiana Super Goes for Obama
Greg Sargent at TPM reports that Indiana Congressman and superdelegate Baron Hill is going to endorse Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) Hill is Obama’s second superdelegate pick up today.
Hill could be as critical to Obama as North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley’s endorsement is for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. Hill, a Blue Dog Democrat, represents Indiana’s highly competitive ninth district. The district has been a battleground since Hill was first elected in 1998. Hill lost the seat to Republican Mike Sodrel in 2004 but then took the seat back in 2006. He could be a crucial Obama surrogate in Republican leaning districts in the state.
