I’m not sure why this story wasn’t reported more or that no one was really covering this event, but it looks like Iowa Secretary of State Mike Mauro has endorsed Hillary Clinton.
“Mauro made his announcement Wednesday at an event in Des Moines, according to a Clinton campaign statement. He says the New York senator stands out among the other candidates and doesn’t have a “learning curve.”
Mauro says no one is more qualified or ready to lead than Clinton.”
This isn’t that big of a deal for Clinton’s campaign, but it is worthwhile to note that Clinton now has an elected statewide Democrat supporting her candidacy.
That means that Gov. Culver and Lt. Gov. Patty Judge are the only statewide elected Democrats not endorsing someone. Iowa State Treasurer Mike Fitzgerald and Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller have endorsed Barack Obama.
I’m not sure if there are any other major Iowa endorsements left, but things are really beginning to get locked up now. Two weeks out and we’re down to the field game.
