The Hillary Clinton for President campaign announced an endorsement Monday.
Former Mississippi governor, William Winter, said he couldn't think of anyone he is more proud to support.
The Democrat said Hillary Clinton will provide real leadership in Washington.
Winter was Mississippi governor from 1980 to 1984. He has also served as a state representative, state tax collector, state treasurer and lieutenant governor.
Clinton's opponent, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, was previously endorsed by former Mississippi governor, Ray Mabus, and U.S. Cong. Bennie Thompson.
