Reagan Sub-Cabinet official Endorses President Obama for Second Term and chastises former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu for injecting Ethnicity into the Endorsement by former Secretary of State Colin Powell.
The Honorable Carlos C. Campbell, formerly Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development with the US Department of Commerce endorsed President Barack Obama for a second term. President Obama has led the ship of state through a tumultuous storm, in spite of resistance by a Republican Congress obsessed with the politics of obstruction. I trust President Obama to lead America going forward. This is an issue based endorsement based on my experience in the military, government and business.
Campbell responded to Governor John Sununus suggesting that Secretary Colin Powells endorsement of President Obama was based on ethnicity.

Secretary Powell is on solid ground in exercising his independence. To his credit, he is not and never has been a domesticated Negro. As citizens, we have a mission to accomplish. We must not become distracted by the ugly snake of racism and lose sight of the assault from the Republican Right on democracy through deception, hundreds of millions of dollars in negative advertising, efforts to obstruct voting rights, demagoguery, fear mongering, disrespecting the rights of women and the rising trend of neo-fascism in America.
