DescriptionCongressional Quarterly reported Thursday that West Virginia Congressman Nick Rahall has endorsed Barack Obama for president.

Rahall told CQ that, "the new voters he has brought to the process this year and the new direction, in my opinion, add up to what our country needs.”

Rahall indicated he gave Obama his endorsement privately up to a week and a half ago. Rahall is also a superdelegate and joins United States Senator Jay Rockefeller as the only supers in West Virginia to endorse Obama. So far, superdelegates Marie Prezioso and Belinda Biafore have endorsed Hillary Clinton.

Rahall acknowledged that his choice of Obama might not be popular with voters in his district, which includes Cabell County.

Other superdelegates, including Senator Robert Byrd and Governor Joe Manchin, have stayed neutral.
