Statement from Governor Rod R. Blagojevich

“On this historic day, I am pleased to join many Illinoisans who are excited and proud to support Senator Obama in his bid for the Presidency.  I know that Senator Obama will fight to make sure that working families have access to health care, good paying jobs, and opportunities to provide for their children.  Senator Obama supports the very best of these Democratic values; they are values that he and I share, values I know he will fight for. 
“Senator Obama has the vision, skills and dedication necessary to bring people together and make real progress in Washington to help solve our country’s greatest and most pressing problems.  Senator Obama offers real hope for the American people and I am proud to give him my support. 
“I want to take this opportunity on this historic day to urge the Legislature to immediately send me a bill to move our state’s primary from March 18, 2008 to February 5, 2008.  That will give Illinois voters an opportunity to send an early message in support of Senator Obama and send him to victory.”
