Brown leading Obama push

Spokane's Lisa Brown, the Senate majority leader, will lead a group of legislators endorsing Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama today.

Obama and Sen. Hillary Clinton have been in an endorsement scramble in the last week as Super Duper Tuesday, and the follow-on Washington precinct caucuses, approach.

Clinton picked up a nod from U.S. Sen. Patty Murray last week, and had other endorsees traipsing around the state over the weekend.

Question to ponder is whether today's announcement's represent the next tier, or the new generation, of support.
