Albany -- Another politician backing Barack Obama's campaign was in Albany Saturday night.

Former Governor of Mississippi Ray Mabus has been traveling throughout the Southeast providing support for Barack Obama before Super Tuesday.

Saturday night he made a stop in Albany to continue the Obama for America campaign.

"Number one, I thought he would be the best democrat to carry the South and do well in places like Georgia and Mississippi. But number two he is the one person who I see can reach across divisions that have been driven between us," said Mabus.

Ray Mabus has been working for Obama's campaign for the past year. Congressman Sanford Bishop was also at Obama's headquarters Saturday night.
