(Talk Media News) – Kathleen Sebelius, former Gov. of Kansas, has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, making her support public in the Topeka Capital-Journal Monday.
“I just feel that she’s the only person, frankly, in the field of candidates who has the experience and background that prepares her nationally and internationally to be the leader of the country,” Sebelius told the Journal.
Clinton and Sebelius served as Cabinet members together during President Obama’s first term in office.
Sebelius was tasked with implementing the contentious Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, after its passing while serving as Secretary of Health and Human Services and Clinton as Secretary of State.
This is the second major endorsement in a single day Clinton has received, with former NAACP president and five-term congressman Kweisi Mfume tossing his support for Clinton. A valuable endorsement as the Democratic primary will be held Saturday in South Carolina where the black vote could be the deciding factor in delegate distribution.
