ATLANTA – The People’s Voice African-American Weekly News in tiny Roanoke, Ala., has not endorsed a candidate in the state’s Democratic presidential primary on Feb. 5 — much to the frustration of its publisher, Charlotte A. Clark-Frieson, a Barack Obama supporter.

“I’m trying to get ready to endorse him, but my board is so split,” Ms. Clark-Frieson said.
