Iowa Insider: Big Lug backing Obama
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Insider
Gov. Chet Culver, who stayed neutral during Iowa’s presidential caucus race, said Thursday he is throwing his support behind Democrat Barack Obama. Culver is traveling to Omaha to appear at a rally tonight with Obama, the U.S. Senator from Illinois who is locked in a tough fight for the Democratic presidential nomination with Hillary Clinton. In an interview Thursday afternoon, Culver cited Obama's commitment to change as the reason he is backing him. Obama won Iowa's Jan. 3 caucuses, beating out Democrats John Edwards and Clinton along with rest of the field. "I think it's clear that the American people are hungry for change," Culver said in an interview with Lee Enterprises.
