As the primary vote for South Carolina quickly approaches, the CBC sponsored debate on the January 21st becomes all that more important. Currently Obama and Clinton share a 15/15 split when it comes to endorsements from the CBC. The endorsements are as follows:

Barack Obama:

Rep. John Conyers (Michigan) , Rep. Sanford Bishop (Georgia) , Rep. Bobby Rush (Illinois), Rep. Chaka Fattah (Pennsylvania), Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (Illinois), Rep. Elijah Cummings (Maryland), Rep. Danny Davis, Rep. Barbara Lee (California), Rep. Lacy Clay (Missouri), Rep. Artur Davis (Alabama), Rep. Al Green (Texas), Rep. Gwen Moore (Wisconsin), Rep. Keith Ellison (Minnesota), Rep. Hank Johnson (Georgia), and Rep. Bobby Scott (Virginia).

Hillary Clinton:

Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (Texas), Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones (Ohio), Rep. Kendrick Meek (Florida), Rep. Corrine Brown (Florida), Rep. Alcee Hastings (Florida), Rep. Yvette Clarke (New York), Rep. Charles Rangel (New York), Rep. Gregory Meeks (New York), Rep. Edolphus Towns (New York), Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (Missouri), Rep. Dianne Watson (California), Rep. Laura Richardson (California), Rep. David Scott (Georgia), Rep. John Lewis (Georgia) Rep. Donna Christian-Christensen (Virgin Islands)

Rep. Maxine Waters (California) endorsed Hillary Clinton (1/29/2008)

John Edwards:

Question: Does the endorsement of a candidate by members of the CBC influence your vote?

  1. I can tell you right now that it has absolutely no influence on my vote one way or the other. Their endorsement only speaks of them as people and it have nothing to do with me. I look at the issues and I decide what it is important to me and that's how a vote. I know this may be a strange concept, but I actually research the people I vote for.
