Carol Ann Campbell, one of Philadelphia’s super delegates and a city Democratic committee cog, has endorsed Barack Obama after a conversation with the candidate’s wife, the Associated Press is reporting.
Campbell is as involved in partisan politics and the Democratic machine in Philadelphia as anyone.
Previously, the former City Councilwoman had said she wouldn’t endorse either candidate before it came time to cast her vote (assuming it will be necessary) in order that she not burn bridges. Her mind was changed by a 90-minute conversation with Michelle Obama, Barack’s wife who is just about charming everyone in sight.
Indeed, it was generally considered that Campbell was a Clinton supporter before the conversation, according to the LA Times.
As posted elsewhere, the tide is surely turning on the Democratic side of this presidential election.
