    much money or many endorsements

    What does the 'endorsements' means exactly? a kind of money to run the campaign?

    in Obama's speech below

    I was never the likeliest candidate for this office. We didn’t start with much money or many endorsements. Our campaign was not hatched in the halls of Washington – it began in the backyards of Des Moines and the living rooms of Concord and the front porches of Charleston.

    Normally endorsement means a speech made after a proposal or motion, seconding that motion/proposal. But Obama’s speech is an election speech and here it means formal and explicit approval to his candidature from Unions, Organizations and Public bodies.

    So with much money or many endorsements means with money power and approval of many organizations.
