Easley Now Supporting Obama

Governor Mike Easley is now campaigning for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Easley introduced Obama at a speech in Raleigh Monday. He had previously endorsed and campaigned for Obama rival Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Obama is honoring his former foes. During a speech in Raleigh on Monday, the Illinois senator praised former rival John Edwards and the ex-North Carolina senator's wife, Elizabeth, for their role in the presidential race. He said they've made everyone think about the obligation to help working families and eliminate the divide between rich and poor.

Obama also had kind words for Easley and said the Democratic chief executive would work to help him win the White House.

Obama won North Carolina by 15 percentage points last month.
Edwards and Easley sat together at Monday's speech on the
