DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Longtime Iowa Senator Tom Harkin says he's backing Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race.

In an editorial column written in the Des Moines Register, the now-retired lawmaker said, "As Democrats, we’re fortunate to have a slate of candidates that are all fine individuals, but we need a fighter who has a record of getting things done and the vision for the future that will build on the progress we’ve made. For my wife, Ruth and I, that candidate is Hillary Clinton."

Tom Harkin will join Hillary Clinton at the Iowa State Fair on Saturday.
