Former Navajo Nation President Peter MacDonald has endorsed Barack Obama.
The Navajo Nation’s highest-profile Republican is crossing party lines this year, unless the McCain-Palin ticket can convince him it has Native Americans at heart.
“I think the Navajos’ only choice is to go with the Democratic ticket,” former Navajo Nation President Peter MacDonald said in a telephone interview.
MacDonald said he’s been a Republican for years, but he doesn’t see any significant changes for the Navajo Nation if Republican Presidential nominee John McCain is elected.
Current Navajo Nation President Shirley has already endorsed Obama.
