Villaraigosa Backs Hillary

Hillary has won the endorsement of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa:

"She's the right candidate at the right time," Villaraigosa said to reporters outside Los Angeles City Hall on Tuesday.
According to the Associated Press, Villaraigosa will announce his endorsement Wednesday, at a Clinton campaign rally at UCLA.

Villaraigosa's endorsement is an important accomplishment for the Clinton campaign. The mayor is popular among the growing number of Hispanic voters. Exit polls in the 2004 election found 21 percent of California voters were Hispanic.
