Clinton to get backing from two governors

O'Malley will formally endorse Clinton Wednesday.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton continues to pick up the endorsements of East Coast governors with Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley endorsing the New York Democrat at an event Wednesday in Annapolis, sources tell CNN.

Next week, New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer will formally back Clinton, joining O'Malley and New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine in supporting the first lady in her White House bid.

O'Malley, who Clinton campaigned for during his successful 2006 gubernatorial bid, will be named the Maryland state chairman of her campaign.

Clinton isn't the only candidate winning support from governors. Her chief rival for the Democratic nomination, Sen. Barack Obama, will attend a fundraiser with Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine Tuesday night. Kaine officially threw his support behind the Illinois Democrat in February.
