Obama Supporters Call Out Clinton

A campaign staff member for Clinton's Democratic rival, Sen. Barack Obama, said Obama plans to campaign in Mississippi before the primary but plans have not been set.

Former Gov. Ray Mabus and Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree held a news conference Wednesday at Obama's Mississippi headquarters in Jackson to criticize remarks Hillary Clinton made about Mississippi months ago.

In October, the Des Moines Register quoted her talking about Iowa and Mississippi being the only states that have never sent a woman to Congress or to the Governor's Mansion.

Mabus said Mississippi should elect more women to office. But he said Hillary Clinton insulted the state.

Gloria Williamson of Philadelphia, a former state senator and former Mississippi Democratic Party chairwoman, is now a volunteer for the Clinton campaign. Williamson said Wednesday Clinton had spoken the truth.
