Wright's Statements Still Weighing In on the Election
During his campaigning in North Carolina, Obama made is clear that Reverend Wright does not speak for him.
He was quoted as saying, "I have said before and I will repeat again that some of the comments that Rev. Wright have made offend me and I understand why they've offended the American people," Obama said in a brief airport tarmac press conference in Wilmington, N.C."
Obama did not mention Wright at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington, where he spoke and took questions for about 80 minutes. In response to a question about his faith Obama spoke at length, but did not use it as an opening to say yet more about Wright.
