Clinton’s one-time Presidential competitor, who had picked her to be his first Secretary of State, has now shown his support in a new YouTube, all but ending Bernie Sanders’ campaign.
“I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office,” Obama said in the video.
“I want those of you who have been with me since the beginning of this incredible journey to be the first to know that I’m with her,” Obama continued. “I am fired up. And I can’t wait to get out there and campaign with Hillary.”
Obama will campaign with Clinton next week in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
His endorsement made note of the historic nature of Clinton’s being the first female presidential nominee of a major political party. Obama’s endorsement of Clinton brings full circle a relationship that began when the two were rivals in the hard-fought 2008 Democratic nominating contest.
