Tony Blair has formally endorsed Gordon Brown to be prime minister, Downing Street said Friday.
"I'm absolutely delighted to give my full support to Gordon as the next leader of the Labour Party and Prime Minister and to endorse him fully," Blair said, a day after announcing he would step down as Labour Party leader on June 27.
Friday's announcement marked the first time he directly supported Brown's bid.
Blair offered the endorsement while speaking at Downing Street following talks with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani.
