Gen. Clark to endorse Sen. Kerry

Former presidential candidate Wesley Clark will through his support behind front-runner John Kerry tomorrow in Wisconsin.

Wesley Clark to endorse Democratic front-runner John Kerry:

“John Kerry lined up the support of campaign dropout Wesley Clark on Thursday, hoping to pre-empt any move by his remaining Democratic presidential rivals to sneak up on him in next week’s Wisconsin primary.
Democratic officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Clark would bestow his endorsement on the front-runner on Friday in Madison, Wis. Kerry gained Clark's pledge of support as rivals John Edwards and Howard Dean crisscrossed the state, focusing on jobs and health care."
This sounds more like Kerry's camp convinced Clark's to endorse Kerry than Clark volunteering to do so. Either way, it is a crucial boost for Kerry coming into the Wisconsin primary, which Edwards and Dean both hope to win to gain some momentum in their campaigns.
