EL DORADO, Kan – Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama has won the endorsement of the governor of Kansas, a state where no Democratic nominee since Lyndon Johnson in 1964 has won electoral votes.

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius arrived at the end of an event here, in the hometown of Obama’s grandfather on his mother’s side, because of high winds and snow in Kansas.

“Right now, I think we are with the next president of the United States,” she said.

Democratic presidential candidates had sought her backing, even though George W. Bush carried the state by large margins in the 2000 and 2004 elections.

Sebelius said Obama has “Midwestern values” that he got “from his grandparents and from his mom.”

With the Kansas caucuses being part of the 22 states that will hold nominating contests a week from today, Sebelius urged more than 2,000 people gathered in a community college gymnasium to support Obama.

“Don’t just applaud, but you caucus for him,” she said.
