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

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

Gates joins Governor Kathleen Sebelius and Lieutenant Governor 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.
