Civil Rights Legend and Congressman John Lewis is endorsing Hillary Clinton as she runs for president in the upcoming 2017 election. Back in October 2007, Lewis had originally backed Clinton’s candidacy but later switched his support to President Barack Obama in February of the following year.

Today he will be fully in support of Clinton, stating, “As our former Secretary of State, Senator from New York and First Lady of the United States Hillary Clinton is the most qualified person to be president of the United States,” in a statement released yesterday by the campaign.

On Wednesday, October 7, the Clinton campaign announced in a press release, the launch of the Hillary for Georgia Leadership Council (HFGA LC), a grassroots-driven volunteer team. In short, it will consist of a group of 60 elected officials, students, and leaders from the community that will help lead Clinton to success in the Georgia Primary on March 1. HFGA LC will lead Georgia’s campaign activities by getting new members to join, sharing Clinton’s policies, and by continuing to educate voters on her efforts, which include increasing the wages of the middle class, and reforming healthcare and the criminal justice system.

Lewis’ support is extremely important for Clinton’s campaign. The congressman stated, “I know her heart. We need her leadership. Not just here in America, but all over the world. She is tireless in her advocacy for those who have been left out and left behind. She is ready to be president on day one. Hillary Clinton has my whole-hearted endorsement, and I plan to work and campaign for her to see that she is elected the next president of the United States.”

    This article was the first thing that I have read since I turned on my computer this morning. First off, Black Enterprise should fire their proofreaders if they let it slip that they got the year wrong for when this election is going to take place: 2016. This is an important election and should not be taken lightly. That’s why I’m disturbed by Congressman Lewis’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton. We only need to read the article to see that “Back in October 2007, Lewis had originally backed Clinton’s candidacy but later switched his support to President Barack Obama in February of the following year.” I am saddened that I have more respect for Congressman Lewis than he has for me. This race for the Democratic nomination has two candidates that I feel have yet to be vetted by our community. I am not ready to give my vote to, let alone endorse any of the candidates until I am fully convinced that the interests of future generations are being considered instead of the rudimentary lip service that has been given by both parties. I respect the past services rendered by Congressman Lewis, but want him to realize that because I am an informed individual his endorsement means very little to me.
