(WCSC) - Citing Hillary Clinton's lifelong record of advocating for women, children and families, Charleston Mayor Joe Riley has announced his endorsement for Clinton.

"Hillary will make an excellent president.  No other candidate has such a deep connection to women, children, families and their day-to-day struggles," said Riley in a press release sent by Clinton's camp.

The two politicians worked together to tackle the issue of teen pregnancy in 1987 when Clinton was chair of the Children's Defense Fund and Riley was President of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

"Our next president must rise to the challenges facing our cites and country, and Hillary will be a tremendous partner that delivers results. Hillary is the president that our nation's mayors need to build and expand the progress of President Obama," Riley stated.
