May 20 2008 Published by under Featured News

This morning the soon to be Democratic nominee Barack Obama picked up two more superdelelgates. Iowa Democratic Chairman Scott Brennan and Guam Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo both endorsed him. “Senator Obama offers us the leadership needed to address the challenges Guam and our nation will face in the coming years,” Bordallo said.

Bordallo focused on issues that matter to Guam, “Senator Obama has also pledged to help improve Guam’s economy, including through opportunities with the military build-up—an issue I have worked very hard on since taking office—and I believe he is the right candidate to help move Guam and our nation forward given the challenges we face in our world today.”

She also stressed Obama support for the Guam World War II Loyalty Recognition Act, “Senator Obama is working very closely with Senator Patrick Leahy, Chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, and other Senate leaders to secure more support for H.R. 1595, the Guam World War II Loyalty Recognition Act. Senator Obama fully understands and supports the efforts to seek full recognition for the patriotism and suffering endured by the people of Guam during enemy occupation in World War II.”

Meanwhile, The Quad-City Times is reporting that Scott Brennan the Iowa Democratic Party Chair will endorse Obama today. Obama has commitments from seven of Iowa’s eleven superdelegates. The only uncommitted superdelegate is the state’s heavyweight, Sen. Tom Harkin. Obama now has 306.5 pledged superdelegates, and he is certain to get the remaining 14.5 delegates tonight that he needs to lock up the overall delegate lead.
