[Elections 2008: Critical Endorsement]


New Mexico governor and ex-Democratic candidate for the presidential nomination governor Bill Richardson has endorsed Senator Barack Obama in a political coup.


Richardson was Secretary of energy under President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton had also vigorously sought his endorsement for weeks.


The official okay will be at a campaign event today.


“There is no doubt in my mind that Barack Obama has the judgment and courage we need in a commander in chief when our nation’s security is on the line,” Richardson said in a statement explaining his endorsement. “He showed this judgment by opposing the Iraq war from the start, and he has show it during this campaign by standing up for a new era in American leadership internationally.”


Richardson also said: “I believe he is the kind of once-in-a-lifetime leader that can bring our nation together and restore America’s moral leadership in the world…..As a presidential candidate, I know full well Sen. Obama’s unique moral ability to inspire the American people to confront our urgent challenges at home and abroad in a spirit of bipartisanship and reconciliation.”


Senator Obama said: “Whether it’s fighting to end the Iraq war or stop the genocide in Darfur or prevent nuclear weapons from falling into the hands of terrorists, Gov. Richardson has been a powerful voice on issues of global security, peace and justice, earning five Nobel Peace Prize nominations.”


Richardson could help boost Obama among Latino voters. Additionally, as a superdelegate he helps Obama increase his lead over Clinton.
