NC Gov. Mike Easley endorses Hillary Clinton

RALEIGH, N.C. (Rocky Mount Telegram) — Exactly one week before the North Carolina primary, Gov. Mike Easley has endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.

An excited Easley called Clinton the next president of the United States while they met on stage at North Carolina State University. He focused on what he said was Clinton's commitment to improving the nation's educational system.

The endorsement is a surprise boost to Clinton's campaign, as Barack Obama is heavily favored to win the state's Democratic primary on May 6, when 115 delegate votes will be at stake.

Clinton is campaigning hard in the state. She has spent the past four days in the state, and former President Bill Clinton will make 11 stops in North Carolina during a two-day campaign tour that begins Tuesday.
