Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter pledged his support Tuesday as a superdelegate to presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama.

"I'm proud to pledge my support to Sen. Barack Obama to become the next President of the United States of America," Gov. Ritter said. "Sen. Obama offers a strong sense of hope and promise for our country's future. His success at inspiring people from all walks of life, his commitment to the need for education and health-care reform, and his sense of independence and purpose make him appealing to Coloradans and other Westerners. He understands the promise of a New Energy Economy, of opportunity for all, of building a strong economy for our children. He is the best person to help Americans and Coloradans achieve their God-given potential, and I am proud to endorse him."

The decision came as Obama clinched the required delegates to become the presumptive presidential nominee for the Democratic party.
