The coalition grows, as the following endorse Obama today:
Brian Melendez, chair of the Minnesota DFL
Donna Cassutt, associate chair of the Minnesota DFL
Renee Pfenning, DNC member from North Dakota
Rep. Yvonne Davis of Texas
Sen. Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia
Rockefeller is the most notable supporter, as the West Virginia Senator is the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee and a longtime Clinton ally. He’s the second senator to endorse Obama this week, the other being Chris Dodd of Connecticut. Both are experienced legislative hands, clearly not discouraged by Obama’s short stay in Washington.
