NEW YORK - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is moving to suspend her campaign and endorse Sen. Barack Obama tomorrow after Democratic members of Congress urged her Wednesday to leave the race and allow the party to coalesce around Mr. Obama, a senior adviser to Mrs. Clinton said, according to the New York Times.

Mrs. Clinton is likely to make the announcement in New York City, an aide said, though no final venue has been chosen.

Her decision came after a day of telephone conversations with supporters on Capitol Hill about what she should do now that Mr. Obama had claimed enough delegates to be able to clinch the nomination. Mrs. Clinton had initially said she wanted to wait before making any decision, but her aides said that in conversations, some of her closest supporters said it was urgent that she step aside.
