NC Reps. McIntyre, Etheridge Backing Obama

Two more members of North Carolina's congressional delegation say they will support Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination.

U.S. Reps. Mike McIntyre and Bob Etheridge told The News & Observer of Raleigh yesterday they will support the Illinois senator.

Obama had secured enough delegates for the nomination on Tuesday night.

Hillary Clinton had won the southeastern North Carolina district of McIntyre, who's from Lumberton. He says he had told both candidates he would wait until the primaries were completed.

Etheridge is from Lillington and said yesterday he also would support Obama.
