Sims switches support to Obama
Associated Press Writer
A Washington state Democratic superdelegate is switching his support from Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama.
King County Executive Ron Sims says he thinks Obama is the kind of candidate who can change the politics of the U.S. Sims is a superdelegate to the national convention.
Former Gov. Gary Locke says he's also supporting Obama. Locke is not a superdelegate. But he and Sims were two co-chairmen of Clinton's Washington state campaign.
Locke was the nation's first Chinese-American governor, serving from 1996-2004. He says he's ready to help Obama with outreach to minority voters around the country, if the campaign needs him.
