U.S. REP. GABRIELLE GIFFORDS ENDORSES BARACK OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

TUCSON – U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords released the following statement today about the race for the Democratic Presidential nomination.

Now that all primaries and caucuses have concluded, I am enthusiastically endorsing Senator Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee for President of the United States.

Since the outset of this historic race for the White House, I have been impressed by the intellect and patriotism of both Senator Hillary Clinton and Senator Barack Obama. They have demonstrated the passion and wisdom to move our nation towards a brighter future. I respect and admire both of them.

Every state has had a chance to vote and Barack Obama has emerged with more support. In becoming a delegate for him, I recognize his inspiring and thoughtful leadership that brought him to the finish line. I am proud to join Governor Janet Napolitano and millions of voters throughout the country in supporting Barack Obama as the next President of the United States. I agree with his policy priorities and his commitment to create a cooperative and bipartisan era in American politics. In states large and small, Barack Obama has shared his hope, optimism, and vision of what is possible. Americans from all walks of life see in him someone who can truly change our nation. I do as well.

It has been a spirited contest between two amazing individuals, engaging record numbers of citizens in our democracy. While ultimately not achieving the nomination, Hillary Clinton helped motivate this extraordinary level of participation. She is one of the most capable national leaders in America whose accomplishments on critical policy matters and advocacy for others have made our country a better place. Her dedication to public service is remarkable and her ongoing work will help us address the many challenges facing the United States and the world.
