Oklahoma Governor Endorses Obama

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Pennsylvania may have gone for Clinton -- but Oklahoma's governor is choosing Obama.

Governor Brad Henry has endorsed Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination, calling him an inspirational leader who can unite the country.

The endorsement gives Obama the official support of three of Oklahoma's 10 superdelegates. Hillary Rodham Clinton has the backing of one superdelegate. The rest are uncommitted.

Henry is the first major Democratic elected official from Oklahoma to endorse Obama.

In the state's Democratic primary in February, 55 percent of the vote went to Clinton, while Obama drew only 31 percent.
