    TAMPA, Fla.—Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, a Republican who served under George W. Bush, declared his support for a second term for President Barack Obama.
    "I voted for him in 2008, and I plan to stick with him in 2012," Powell said Thursday during an interview with "CBS This Morning." "I'll be voting for he and for Vice President Joe Biden next month."
    Powell said he believed Obama's economic policies were helpful in turning around the sluggish economy, and he criticized Republican challenger Mitt Romney's stance on foreign policy.

    Sununu suggests Colin Powell's Obama endorsement racially driven [​IMG]

    Sununu, the former Republican governor of New Hampshire and the co-chair of the Romney campaign, downplayed the significance of the endorsement to CNN's Piers Morgan, and suggested Powell, a Republican who also endorsed Mr. Obama in 2008, had a "slightly different reason" for doing so than other prominent politicians.
