Obama News on Wednesday

Sen. Barack Obama picked up the endorsements of the United Mine Workers of America and superdelegate Rep. Joe Courtney giving him only 62 delegates more to go for the nomination.

Here's the statement from UMWA:

We are extremely proud to make this endorsement today. Sen. Obama shares the values of UMWA members and our families. He understands and will fight for the needs our members have today and the hopes our members have for a secure future for themselves and their families.

Most of all, Sen. Obama will implement the clear change in direction UMWA members–indeed, all American working people–must have if they are to once again move forward and have a true opportunity to realize the American dream. After eight years of being pushed aside by an administration which neither respects nor values the contributions American working families make to our society, we are looking forward with great anticipation to a new era in our nation starting with the inauguration of President Barack Obama on January 20, 2009.

Today, Barack Obama spoke before 15,000 people in Tampa Bay, Florida. Watch the video.
