Gov. Easley Endorses Clinton

Exactly one week before the North Carolina primary, Gov. Mike Easley has endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.

An excited Easley called Clinton the next president of the United States while they met on stage at North Carolina State University. He focused on what he said was Clinton's commitment to improving the nation's educational system.

The endorsement is a surprise boost to Clinton's campaign, as Barack Obama is heavily favored to win the state's Democratic primary on May 6, when 115 delegate votes will be at stake.

Clinton is campaigning hard in the state. She has spend the past four days in the state, and former President Bill Clinton will make 11 stops in North Carolina during a two-day campaign tour that begins Tuesday.

    Do I detect a little attitude from the editor? He can edit us but we do not have the right to edit him? HMMM that seems a bit HILTERish.

    Editor's Note: Think you meant HITLERish. :)

    Good job Michael: 'candidates to take more",should it not have been "talk"? Just a little fun pun.

    It looks as if there was not a proofreader on duty: "He's called on both of the presidential candidates to take more about he issue. The person spokes to the AP on a condition of anonymity because a formal announcement had not yet been made."

    Editor's Note: We can't thank you enough for your attention to detail and bringing this to our attention for correction. In our non-stop efforts to keep the website updated this afternoon (nearly up to the minute!) with severe weather and breaking news, we missed that one. Again, we appreciate your help policing the website so very much!
