The former KKK member (a long, long, long time ago) and West Virginia senator sends a symbolic message to the Democrats in his state who vote overwhelmingly for Hillary.
“As people all across this great nation know, I have been one of the most outspoken opponents of the Bush administration’s misguided war in Iraq and its saber rattling around the globe,” Byrd said.
He said he had “no intention of involving myself in the Democratic campaign for President in the midst of West Virginia’s primary election. But the stakes this November could not be higher.” [...]
“Barack Obama is a noble-hearted patriot and humble Christian, and he has my full faith and support,” Byrd concluded.
Long story short, it’s time to unify this party once and for all and Byrd gets that. Too bad Hillary doesn’t.
