Obama Endorses 81 Candidates
Former President Barack Obama released a slew of candidate endorsements in races across the nation Wednesday and pledged his involvement in the fast-approaching midterm elections.
Obama's wide-ranging list delivered his imprimatur to 81 Democrats in 14 states running for the House and Senate, governor, and down-ballot state legislative races. Many of the congressional candidates are running in the most competitive battleground races.
“I’m proud to endorse such a wide and impressive array of Democratic candidates — leaders as diverse, patriotic, and big-hearted as the America they’re running to represent,” Obama said in a statement.
