Cantwell endorses Clinton

Democrat Maria Cantwell endorsed Senate colleague Hillary Clinton for president Monday, citing Clinton’s experience on energy and environmental issues.

Cantwell, Washington’s junior senator, said she believes Clinton has the experience to reduce dependence on foreign oil and move the country toward renewable energy.

A strong proponent of developing alternative fuels, Cantwell sits on the Senate Energy Committee and has called for investigations into Enron’s utility charges and high costs of gasoline.

She is the 10th senator to endorse Clinton.

Washington will hold precinct caucuses Feb. 9 and a presidential preference primary Feb. 19.
