Obama: Hagel's wife to endorse

The wife of GOP Sen. Chuck Hagel (NE) will throw her support to Obama today in Virginia, the AP reports. Sen. Hagel has yet to endorse, though he accompanied Obama on a trip overseas during this campaign. Also in attendance at the event will be Susan Eisenhower, granddaughter of Dwight Eisenhower. Eisenhower has written an op-ed in support of Obama.

And another government grant story… "Obama awarded $75,000 in government grants to a Chicago social service organization led by a rabbi who is also his wife's cousin, records show," AP reports.

Debate continues on whether Obama knew of Ayers' history.
