A day after getting an endorsement from Nevada's biggest union, Barack Obama picked up another endorsement from a fellow senator.Nebraska's Ben Nelson is a popular moderate who often votes with the republicans. But he's siding with Obama, and his state votes on February 9th.

John McCain also picked up a crucial endorsement Saturday, from South Carolina's largest newspaper.

"The State" says Senator McCain has the "necessary experience" and "quality of understanding" to be President.

The editorial page editor says the paper also should have endorsed McCain in 2000 when he faced George W. Bush.
