Edwards Backers Overwhelmingly Support Obama

While former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards has not yet signalled if he will endorse either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton for the party's nomination, his former supporters are speaking clearly regarding their preference, The Hill reports.

1,093 former supporters of Mr. Edwards who had given at least $200 to his campaign have given such an amount to Sen. Obama since Mr. Edwards dropped out; only 393 such donors have contributed to Sen. Clinton. Sen. Obama's take from those supporters has been nearly $1 million, compared to only $427,000 for Sen. Clinton.
