Austin Mayor Backs Obama

Just ahead of a huge debate set to take place in Austin this weekend the city mayor, Will Wynn, has pledged his support to Barack Obama. News 8 in Austin broke the story with this article. This is a huge win for Obama but one that wasn't unexpected. Wynn also is the Chair for the Energy Committee of the US Conference of Mayors and praised Obama's energy plan (in all fairness Hillary's is quite similar). In a city that consistently rates among the happiest and most satisfied with their local government this could be a big push as Austin is seated in one of the larger senate districts that could tip the delegate count toward Obama even without the popular vote. Stay tuned for more Obama news and let's get the word out before the March 4th primary!
