This big endorsement may have gotten lost in all the other politics going on, but Dr. John Hope Franklin, a person some call the greatest living American, has endorsed Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination.
"He has shown an ability to bridge the divides in our society and unite people behind his agenda for change," he said in a statement.
Franklin has also endorsed Hampton Dellinger for Lt. Governor.
"Today, more than ever, the leaders that we choose will directly impact our lives and everything that we’ve worked so hard to accomplish. That’s why I’m strongly supporting Hampton Dellinger for Lt. Governor of North Carolina." -- Dr. John Hope Franklin
Franklin's letter to NC voters
I encourage everyone to at least listen to the advice of one of the wisest sages we have, and consider voting for Barack Obama in the Presidential and Hampton Dellinger in the Lt. Governor's race.
