ASSOCIATED PRESS

Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) told the New York Times in an interview published Tuesday that he would support a Hillary Clinton bid in 2016 as she is “the most qualified person in America to be president.”

“I won’t make an endorsement, but I will say this: If she makes a decision to run I would be with her,” Lewis told the Times. “I think today she is the most qualified person in America to be president. No one has worked so hard or done a more effective job in representing this country as secretary of state in modern times.”
