The Hampton town Democratic Chairman Gary Patton tells the Globe he is endorsing Barack Obama's presidential campaign.
His endorsement comes a month after his wife, Lenore, who is the Rockingham County Democratic Chair, also endorsed Obama.
Gary writes in his soon to be published column in the local Atlantic News that the race was between two people, Obama and Hillary Clinton. He was moved by a recent cover story in The Atlantic Monthly that argued forgetting Obama the man it is what Obama represents that would make him a better choice to be president.
About the story's argument Patton writes, "I could not agree more".
