Clinton wins endorsement of State Sen. Lou D'Allesandro.
MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (CNN) – State Sen. Lou' D'Allesandro endorsed Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, for president Friday, on the last day for candidates to file for the Granite State primary.
"In my opinion, the person who can do the job as the next president of the
United States is Hillary Clinton," D'Allesandro said before a large crowd of voters, many of whom were disabled. "She brings to this campaign a sincere interest in all of the items that we’re concerned about."
The battle for D'Allesandro's stamp of approval, known in Granite State politics as "Courting Lou," is a significant win for Clinton. D'Allesandro is well-respected and in his fifth term in the state Senate.
