Weygands endorse Obama

Like Jim Langevin, Bob Weygand is one of those quintessential Rhode Island political types -- a pro-life Democrat, so this endorsement could help Obama a bit with the more socially conservative parts of Hillary's local base:

PROVIDENCE, RI – The Obama campaign today announced that former U.S. Congressman Robert Weygand and his wife Fran Weygand have endorsed Barack Obama for President. Citing Obama’s unique ability reach across party lines, the Weygands believe Barack Obama is the strongest candidate to win the White House in November.


“Today more than ever, the American people need to support the one candidate who will reach across party lines to build the kind of broad coalition that can bring about a coalition for change,” said former Congressman Weygand. “Not only will Barack Obama be our strongest general election candidate, but also when he’s president, he’ll move us past the partisan fights that have blocked so much progress and actually bring about the kind of change we can believe in.”


Robert Weygand is a former U.S. Congressman, Lieutenant Governor, and State Representative serving Rhode Isand. He currently serves as Vice President for Administration at the University of Rhode Island.
