Swett, Reardon Join Clinton Team

Mr. John DiStaso of The Union Leader is reporting that the Clinton team has picked up a couple of more endorsements. Here is his report:

"Hillary Clinton's campaign picked up significant local support his week with endorsements by former U.S. Rep. Dick Swett and veteran strategist Judy Reardon.

Swett's and his wife, Katrina, are long-time friends of the Clintons. The former President appointed him ambassador to Denmark in 1998.

Katrina Swett, who intends to run for the U.S. Senate in 2008, is staying out of the endorsement game, at least for now, her husband said.

Dick said he is "eager to work with the Clinton campaign on issues relating to our energy consumption" and how it relates to national security, as he did with his '04 Presidential pick, Joe Lieberman.

Reardon, deputy chief of staff for former Gov. Jeanne Shaheen, will keep her position at The Dupont Group lobbying firm and won't hold an official title in the campaign. But she said she'd give "as much help as I possibly can."

Reardon was John Kerry's deputy campaign director for northern New England in 2004. She said she decided some time ago that if Kerry decided not to run, she'd back Clinton."
