As one of four Missouri Democrats elected statewide, it is my responsibility to help ensure that the Democratic Party nominates a candidate for president who will best represent Missourians.
I announce my endorsement of U.S. Sen. Barack Obama. I encourage all Missouri voters to join me in supporting him.
America needs a leader who can inspire us to be better in every way. Barack Obama is a once-in-a-generation leader who will bring this country together like we haven’t seen in over 40 years. Obama is running a campaign that is about more than Democrat or Republican — listen to him and you’ll hear a message of coming together as a nation to solve our common problems. Look at his record and you’ll see a history of working with people of all kinds, focusing on common purpose instead of perceived difference.
Electing Barack Obama is about more than race or gender or class. I’m endorsing Barack Obama because he represents America as it can be, America as it should be. After nearly eight years of partisan politics trumping good government, the stakes are too high for any of us to sit on the sidelines.
