NH Republican Quits McCain Campaign To Back Obama

Posted: Updated:
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A prominent New Hampshire Republican who
was a delegate to the party's nominating convention is quitting
John McCain's campaign and endorsing Barack Obama.
Fred Bramante says he is resigning as a member of McCain's New
Hampshire Leadership Committee. He had been a co-chairman of Mike
Huckabee's New Hampshire presidential campaign and joined McCain
after the former Arkansas governor dropped out of the race.
Bramante, a member of the state Board of Education, said he
opposes McCain's support of school vouchers, which he said
politicians must abandon if they want to improve education.
Bramante said he's concluded that McCain would do little to
improve education, while Obama supports new and innovative ideas.
