The nation's first openly gay Episcopal bishop endorsed Senator Barack Obama's presidential campaign this morning.
Gene Robinson, of Weare, N.H., was elected to be the New Hampshire Bishop for the church in 2003, setting off a split in the church.
Robinson, a registered independent, said he was attracted to Obama because they "share values" including a background of community organizing.
He also took o jab at the others in the race.
"There has been a lot of talk about whether Obama is experienced enough," said Robinson. "Frankly I am unimpressed with where the experience of those in the race has gotten us."
