Obama scores big in AZ with Napolitano backing

Gov. Napolitano, Rep. Giffords and Sen. Obama

UPDATE, 12/1: Napolitano leaving AZ; welcome Gov. Jan Brewer (R)

UPDATE, 11/20: Napolitano should say 'no, thanks' on DHS Secretary.

PHOENIX -- Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano will back Sen. Barack Obama today for President.

This is a big political win for Mr. Obama, and a big loss for Clinton.

Napolitano is widely liked and respected in Arizona and nationally, especially by Dems, and she has proven to be politically very smart and tough.

Janet's endorsement of Obama will help him in Arizona on Feb 5. With staff and offices in Tucson and Phoenix, Obama has been working hard to win here.

Westerners will finally get to weigh in on the Presidential race Jan 19 in Nevada.

I think the governor is a fool to back Obama. Hillary is much smarter and really knows what's going on. I think there is alot of jealous women in high places that would like to bring Hillary down. Sorry this is just in a women makeup. I think the press is leaving Obama alone because he is black and they don't want to look like they are predjustice.

I don't agree that just because Janet endorsed Obama he will win. If you crunch the numbers of who his base is, young people he does not stand a chance in a dem primary. Senior women will carry this primary and Obama can't get that vote and the Gov. won't help. Look at the numbers they don't add up. Obama will loose AZ and the Gov. won't be able to carry this loyal vote.
