WASHINGTON (CNN) – Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced Friday that she had picked up the support of Iowa Rep. Leonard Boswell, who pointed to her “strength and experience.”
“The country cannot afford for the Democrats to lose another election. There’s too much at stake,” the six-term congressman said in a statement. “She’s the most qualified candidate and has the best chance at winning back the White House.”
Half of Iowa’s Democratic congressional delegation has now publicly endorsed a candidate. Freshman Rep. Bruce Braley endorsed John Edwards earlier this month. Fellow freshman Rep. Dave Loebsack and Sen. Tom Harkin have yet to come out in favor of a presidential contender.
Harkin’s wife Ruth announced earlier this year that she is supporting Clinton.
