"I am thrilled to be supporting Hillary for President, and was excited to be at the launch yesterday evening of her Kentucky campaign headquarters," Fischer said, in an emailed statement.

"As first lady, she helped get health care for 8 million children. As senator, she helped expand family leave for military families. As president, she’ll work to create good-paying jobs, fight for equal pay for women, and make sure all our kids get a good education no matter what zip code they live in. That's why I'm with her."
