A spokesman for US Congressman John Barrow says, the Democrat is endorsing the "top of his party's ticket" for President.

That might be a tough job since Barrow actually opposes Obama on critical issues.

With all but absentee votes counted, the race is still too close call. Grovetown State Representative Lee Anderson led Augusta businessman Rick Allen at the end of the night by just 153 votes.
