ATLANTA (Reuters) - Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter will endorse Sen. Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee for president when polls close in two primaries later on Tuesday, the Carter Center in Atlanta said.

Carter, a superdelegate, has remained neutral in the nomination race but has hinted his support for Obama and has said that members of his family supported the Illinois senator who is poised to clinch the Democratic nomination.
