DES MOINES — Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign today announced that United States Army veteran Kent Sovern, who was announced just last week as the statewide Co-Chair of Senator Clinton’s Veterans Committee, has now decided to caucus for Senator Obama and is encouraging other Iowa veterans to caucus for Obama on Thursday, January 3rd. Sovern also serves on the Iowa Democratic Party Veterans Caucus and is a combat veteran of the Vietnam War.\ \ \ “I believe Senator Obama has the judgment and courage to stand up for America’s veterans and find a responsible way to get our combat troops out of Iraq,” said Sovern of Des Moines. “We can trust him to tell us the truth on the tough issues — even when it’s not convenient. That’s why I’ll be standing for him on Thursday, January 3rd and encouraging veterans across Iowa to do the same.”
