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.
