Sen. Dorgan Endorses and Rep. Lewis Switches to Obama Camp

Longtime 5th District Georgia Congressman and Civil Rights leader John Lewis is switching his support from Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama.

Blog buzz had been swirling that Lewis might switch his endorsement from Clinton to Obama. Lewis is a superdelegate who will cast his ballot at the Democratic National Convention.

Lewis said he was switching to Obama because his district strongly supported Obama in Super Tuesday's Georgia primary and he believes Americans are looking for a great change.

Also, Senator Byron Dorgan of North Dakota endorsed Obama on Wednesday, citing his record on trade.

"Senator Obama has never felt ... that NAFTA was good for America," Dorgan said in a campaign conference call with reporters.

Hillary Clinton has been endorsed by 13 of her Senate colleagues, Obama 10.
