Second Female Senator Endorses ObamaWASHINGTON (AP) — Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar is backing Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Klobuchar became the second female senator to endorse Obama for president. She said Obama represents the kind of change she ran on.
Klobuchar joins Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, who endorsed Obama in January. Overall, Obama has the support of 13 senators, all superdelegates who could help decide the election.
Obama rival Hillary Rodham Clinton also has the support of 13 senators, including six women.
Klobuchar says she doesn't agree with some Obama supporters who say it's time for Clinton to drop out. She says that Clinton has run a strong campaign and should remain in the race.
