In a statement released by Obama's campaign, Donnelly said, "At a time when too many Americans have lost faith in their government, Senator Obama can move us beyond the politics of stalemate and gridlock that has kept us from meeting the monumental challenges of our time: our dependence on foreign oil, a health care gap that leaves tens of millions uninsured, the steady deterioration of our manufacturing base, and an economy that is not working for working people."


Obama has recently shown momentum in the battle for uncommitted superdelegates, picking up over 26 since the day before Indiana and North Carolina Democrats went to the polls (see yesterday's AP story on Obama's superdelegate momentum here).
