John Lewis Switching Support from Clinton to Obama

Rep. John Lewis -- who had previously endorsed Hillary Clinton -- says he is now switching his support to Barack Obama.

"Lewis told [WSB TV's Monica] Pearson he was switching his support because his district voted for Obama and he believes Americans are looking for a great change. He also said he had not spoken to Clinton or Obama about his decision."

Read the rest. Lewis' early endorsement turned out to be a political risk. It resulted in him picking up opposition to his congressional seat for the first time in nearly 10 years.
