Obama dips into midterm election with first endorsements

Obama dips into midterm election with first endorsementsBy John Whitesides WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former U.S. President Barack Obama dipped into November’s midterm election fight for the first time on Wednesday, endorsing 81 Democrats in 14 states with a focus on young, diverse candidates and lower-level races. Obama, whose relatively low political profile since leaving office last year has frustrated some fellow Democrats, described the list as a first wave of endorsements and said he was eager to campaign this fall to “make the case for why Democratic candidates deserve our votes.” In a year when the national Democratic Party has emphasized regaining ground at the state level, Obama’s list includes five gubernatorial and 40 state legislative candidates, as well as a candidate for agriculture secretary in Iowa and several candidates for secretary of state and attorney general.
