Vilsack to endorse Clinton next week
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, will be endorsed for president Monday by former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack, a source close to Vilsack tells CNN.
Vilsack, who was the first major Democrat to officially declare his own presidential bid in November only to abandon it in February because of lackluster fundraising, will formally declare his support for Clinton at a Des Moines news conference. Vilsack's endorsement could be key in this early presidential proving ground where he served two terms as governor.
