I'm surprised (0.00 / 0)
that they would make this endorsement before the convention.  We never did get the caucus results but in the primary, Clinton won so wouldn't that give her more delegates at the convention, which would mean that she wins Texas??  If so, what does it mean that the party chair endorses contrary to the votes of the party?  I'm very confused by all of this.

Obama will have more delegates out of Texas -- thus, he won (3.00 / 2)
Here's a post we wrote explaining the breakdown:

Why today and not next week? (0.00 / 0)
Richie's endorsing before the convention isn't strange, especially since there's a lot of pressure on all superdelegates to show their cards. It also reduces the chance of any challenge to his chairmanship from the Obama camp (e.g. Roy Laverne Brooks' rumored run)

What I don't understand is why anybody is endorsing right now, with the last primaries just 4 days away. Wouldn't it make more sense to let PR, SD and MT have their say and then weigh in on Tuesday night or Wednesday?

BTW, caucus results were announced a long time ago-- Obama got more county delegates, by about 55-45, and then got more state delegates, again by about 55-45. He gets more caucus-based national delegates, she gets more primary-based national delegates, and the total is a slim majority for Obama.
