Kansas Superdelegate Endorses Obama

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas Democratic Party Chairman Larry Gates is endorsing Barack Obama's bid for the party's presidential nomination.

Gates, one of Kansas' superdelegates to the Democratic National Convention, said Monday he was backing Obama for his ability to win in Republican-dominated states and "his positive campaign.''

Gates joins Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and Lt. Gov. Mark Parkinson, who have endorsed Obama's campaign over Hillary Rodham Clinton. All three are among the state's superdelegates to the national convention this summer in Denver.

Obama defeated Clinton in the Kansas caucuses in February.
