Indiana Congressman Pete Visclosky Endorses Barack Obama; Delegate Countdown - 137 To Go

CHICAGO, IL  -- Today, Indiana Congressman Pete Visclosky endorsed Barack Obama for President, citing his commitment to build a working coalition to address the real issues Americans face:
America needs a President who offers a vision of the future comprised of sensible solutions to today's troubles.  My choice is Senator Barack Obama, who promises to seek pragmatic, progressive solutions to problems like jobs, Iraq, the energy crisis, and healthcare.  Barack Obama will bring people together, give them hope, spur change, and set the U.S. back on a course toward progress, prosperity, and global leadership.

Senator Obama said: “I want to thank Congressman Visclosky for his support. Pete has been an advocate for Indiana’s working men and women. I look forward to working with him to strengthen our economy, create a clean energy future and ensure our seniors are able to retire with the dignity they deserve.
Visclosky is the 286th  superdelegate to endorse Barack Obama.
