Statement: Anna Eshoo Endorses Hillary Clinton for President

January 28, 2016

Palo Alto, CA – Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (CA-18) released the following statement today:

“It is my privilege to endorse Secretary Hillary Clinton for President of the United States.  Hillary Clinton is not only the most qualified person in the race, she is one of the most battletested, resilient and knowledgeable candidates ever to seek the Presidency.

“The case for her candidacy exceeds mere ‘experience.’  She hasn’t simply amassed titles nor merely held positions. She’s learned first hand how government operates by doing the work.  Advocate. Counselor. Advisor. No other candidate offers her informed perspective drawn from the highest service in both executive and legislative branches of the federal government. No other candidate offers her depth on domestic policy and none comes close to matching her stature as a seasoned diplomat and international force.

“From her time at the Children’s Defense Fund to her work improving public schools in Arkansas to her efforts to reform the nation’s healthcare system, Hillary has mastered the systems and details of domestic policy. Her network of experts and elected leaders in the states — rising, serving and emeritus — constitutes an unparalleled brain trust that she will bring to bear on the nation’s most intractable problems.

“In Silicon Valley we admire those who venture something, fail and try again.  Secretary Clinton embodies that optimism and perseverance.  She has been a national presence for more than twenty years and we have seen that there is no one stronger at the core to pursue and protect the best interests of our nation.

“The times require a proven leader, committed to fulfilling the promise of our great nation.  Hillary Clinton has the experience, knowledge and passion to be that leader for all of us.

“I am delighted to endorse her.”
