ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas says he’s throwing his support behind Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.

Balderas traveled to Iowa on Monday to support Clinton during a forum focused on minority issues. The event at Drake University includes Clinton, Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders.

As the nation’s only elected Latino Democratic attorney general, Balderas says he believes Clinton is the best qualified to strengthen the economy, reform the criminal justice system and fix the nation’s broke immigration system.

The attorney general’s campaign is paying for his trip to Iowa.
