Faleomavaega breaks with local Dem. Party Leadership
In an almost united front, American Samoa Governor Togiola and the entire leadership of the local Democratic Party the day before the New Hampshire primary announced their support for Sen. Hillary Clinton as next president of the U.S. That leaves out Del. Faleomavaega, who has announced his support for Sen. Barack Obama. It is said that the local Democratic Party does not have much use for Faleomavaega and several years ago rebuffed his efforts to be electe4d national committeeman. It is not publicized at all, but it is believed it has been some years since he has sought the party's endorsement for re-election out of fear they will vote down the proposition.
