DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Two Democrats who hold statewide office are endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.

Attorney General Tom Miller and Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald released statements Friday endorsing Clinton for the Democratic nomination.

Their support came hours before the Iowa Democratic Party’s Hall of Fame dinner in Cedar Rapids, which marks the first event where all the Democratic presidential candidates will join in Iowa.

In their statements supporting Clinton, Miller and Fitzgerald lauded her economic plans, which they say would benefit American workers.

Five Democrats are seeking their party’s nomination for president. Besides Clinton, the candidates are Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb and former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee.
