Lawton endorses Clinton

Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton endorsed U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton following a speech in which she came and left the stage to a standing ovation after praising candidates from the Democratic presidential field while lobbying support for Gov. Doyle's budget plan.

Lawton said "this is our moment to seize" to support Doyle's budget that she said would put health care and education within reach for everyone, including the foreign born, while setting Wisconsin entrepreneurs free to pursue stem cell research.

Lawton said this can only happen with a Democrat in the White House, bashing Bush while praising each of the Democratic presidential candidates for being trendsetters in talking about Iraq, poverty and health care at the forefront of their agendas.

As Lawton rounded out the field, she saved her final comments for Clinton.

"I declare my unequivocal endorsement for Hillary Clinton," said Lawton. "As a trailblazer, she long had the courage to put health care at the front of her agenda.

"She has the breadth of national and international experience to make her poised to take office in 2009."
