WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president.

The Massachusetts liberal appeared on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show Thursday night, saying she’s ready to “work my heart out,” for the presumptive Democratic nominee. Her backing comes the same day as President Barack Obama’s endorsement of Clinton.

Warren says Clinton is “a fighter … she’s tough,” and has been able to withstand repeated attacks from the political right. She says each time Clinton takes a hit she “gets back up” and returns to the political fight.

Warren kept up her criticism of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, telling Maddow that Trump’s “a genuine threat” to the country.

She says Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ candidacy has been “powerfully important” in bringing millions of people into the Democratic party.
