â€œI am endorsing Hillary Clinton for President today for many important reasons. As a Member of the House Foreign Relations Committee, I worked closely with Secretary Clinton and I am impressed with her strength, her experience and her determination to keep our nation safe,” he said in a statement released minutes ago.
“I am also confident that Hillary is fully committed to the comprehensive immigration reform that is so important for our nationâ€™s future. I believe that Hillary Clinton is honest and sincere and well prepared to be an excellent President for our great nation and I am very proud to support her.â€
Sires’ endorsement does not come as much of a surprise, given that Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has trailed Clinton significantly in delegates and superdelegates for months.
Furthermore, the Hudson County Democratic Organization gave an emphatic endorsement of Clinton at a press conference at the Brennan Court House in Jersey City last month.
The Hudson County delegates for the Clinton campaign are Jersey City Councilwoman-at-Large Joyce Watterman and former Assemblywoman Joan Quigley.
