Endorsement Wave Keeps Rolling

The support for Barack Obama is coming in so fast it's hard to keep track of it all.

Here are some of the new endorsements.

From the press, the Native Times, Oakland Tribune, Contra Costa Times (CA), Yale Daily News (CT), and The Statesman (Stony Brook University) are backing Obama.

The owner of the Oakland Tribune also owns other Bay Area newspapers that will also carry the same endorsement: San Mateo County Times, Tri-Valley Herald, The Argus, The Daily Review and the Alameda Times-Star. These papers cover the entire Bay Area.

The very powerful California SEIU labor organization will be rallying their members behind Obama after endorsing the Illinois senator today.

Elected official endorsements include Reps. Earl Blumenauer of Oregon and Jim Oberstar of Minnesota.

Kansas Lt. Gov. Mark Parkinson is supporting Obama as is Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels.
