Governor Rendell was a big help to Clinton in Pennsylvania, and Clinton needs the same kind of boost in North Carolina, and it looks like Governor Easley will provide that boost.
A person close to North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley tells The Associated Press he will endorse Hillary Rodham Clinton for president.
Easley is a Democratic superdelegate who has served as the state's governor for two terms. His decision comes despite several recent polls showing Clinton trailing rival Barack Obama ahead of the state's May 6 primary.
Of course Clinton needs superdelegates, but having a strong campaigner to help her with her North Carolina campaign is key. She'll get exactly that with Governor Easley.
Governor Easley is a former John Edwards supporter.
