What’s your desire for a cite have to do with it? You asked if Johnson endorsed Obama, and the email from Obama’s people in NC is the most credible piece of evidence either way.
I said that many news outlets may be trying to confirm this, and if so, that could be why they have not said anything. It may also be that he’s just not on their radar screen. The longer this goes on, the less credible the endorsement seems. I went to Junior Johnson’s Web site and called the number listed under “Junior Johnson Brand Products,” but the guy who picked up the phone didn’t know anything about it. He said they were just a computer store, and they maintain the Web site, so he wasn’t in any position to confirm it.
