Cong. Lewis Makes the "Right Thing" Official

Although predicted here close to a month ago, and rumored (although not confirmed) here a few weeks ago, Congressman John Lewis, confirmed the inevitable by formally confirming his endorsement of Senator Barack Obama yesterday.
'Something's happening in America, something some of us did not see coming,' Lewis said. 'Barack Obama has tapped into something that is extraordinary.'
Lewis, a hero of the civil rights movement, conceded that his district's decision to overwhelmingly support Obama led to his decision.

No word on whether Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones (D-OH), last seen on "Morning Joe" defending the 'native garb' photo leaked over the weekend, is also re-considering her endorsement; she remains one of Hillary's most vocal -- and vociferous -- surrogates, despite the likely outcome of the primary in the 11th District.
