North Dakota Senator Conrad Endorses Obama for President!

North Dakota Sen. Conrad endorses Obama for president.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) North Dakota Sen. Kent Conrad is endorsing Barack Obama's presidential campaign.

Conrad says he hasn't endorsed anyone in a Democratic presidential primary before. Conrad was first elected to the Senate in 1986.

But Conrad says he thinks it's important for party leaders to stand up and be counted in the current campaign.

North Dakota's other senator, Byron Dorgan, and Congressman Earl Pomeroy are officially neutral so far in the Democratic presidential race.

Conrad says he believes Obama has the greatest potential among the Democratic candidates to unite the country and inspire people.

The Iowa caucuses are on Thursday. Conrad says he'll be campaigning for Obama this weekend in the state.

Obama is a first-term Democratic senator from Illinois. Three other senators are in the Democratic primary field Hillary Clinton of New York, Joe Biden of Delaware and Christopher Dodd of Connecticut.
