Mallory's statement on Obama
COLUMBUS, OH—Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory announced his endorsement of Barack Obama at today’s “Keeping America’s Promise” Rally at the University of Cincinnati.
Mayor Mallory is a Superdelegate and will cast his vote for Obama at the Democratic Convention in Denver this summer. He joins fellow in Ohio Superdelegates Sonny Nardi and David Wilhelm in supporting Senator Obama.
“Barack Obama is inspiring and exciting people in Cincinnati in way I haven’t seen before, bringing new people into the political process because they believe in his message that when we come together, anything is possible,” Mayor Mallory said. “We know the challenges we face are steep—finally providing a quality education for every child; making sure that every American has health care. But we also know that with the right leadership, we can put the partisanship and the special interests aside and finally make progress again for working people. I’m endorsing Barack Obama today for the same reason that so many Cincinnatians are supporting him: because we know he’s the candidate who can bring about the change we need.”
“Mayor Mallory has seen the kind of impact that Washington’s misguided priorities have had on working people, and he understands that we’re lacking isn’t good ideas—it’s the political will to make them reality,” Senator Obama said. “I’m grateful to have the mayor’s support for this campaign for change as we head into the final week of the campaign in Ohio.”
Following the rally, Obama was to campaign at a “Keeping America’s Promise” Rally at Wright State University in Dayton.
