More Big Name Republicans Endorse Obama

As if the polls today weren't bad news enough for the McCain-Palin ticket, two more well-known Republicans announced their support for Barack Obama this morning.

In Minnesota, former Republican governor Arne Carslon told a group of Obama voters at a rally on the steps of the state capitol in St. Paul that he is voting for the Illinois Senator. Carlson, who served two terms as governor of the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes from 1991 through 1998, praised Obama's economic plans, his stance on the Iraq war and his environmental policy.

In Arizona, CC Goldwater announced her endorsement of Barack Obama in an op-ed piece written for The Huffington Post.  Ms. Goldwater is a highly successful filmmaker and granddaughter of the founder of the modern Conservative movement, the late Senator Barry Goldwater (R-AZ).  In making her support for Obama public, Ms. Goldwater cited attributes the Democratic nominee has in common with her late grandfather: honesty, integrity, support for personal freedom and a political discourse free from fear tactics.
