Party Chair June O’Neill on Senator Obama

“On behalf of New York Democrats I am proud to endorse Barack Obama for President of the United States and look forward to uniting the Democratic Party here in the Empire State behind him.

“Senator Obama is a thrilling nominee whose life story is a testament to the American dream. As a community organizer in Chicago, a state legislator and a U.S. Senator he has fought for Democratic values. His campaign has brought tens of thousands of New Yorkers into the political process for the first time and electrified the grassroots of the Democratic Party.

“As President he will restore America’s standing in the world, bring our troops home and create an economy that works for the many instead of just the very few.

“I also want to salute our favorite daughter and my friend, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, for a historic candidacy that has broken barriers, inspired millions and made us so proud to be New York Democrats. I am one of the women Hillary spoke of today who came of age at a time when her candidacy seemed almost unimaginable. Today I am so proud to have been part of a campaign that has shattered a glass ceiling and taught my daughter and my granddaughter that there is nothing that a woman can’t do. I join Democrats across New York in saluting Hillary for a campaign that made us proud and welcoming her home as our Senator to the Empire State.”

— June O’Neill, New York State Democratic Party Chairwoman
