Gov. Kate Brown officially threw her support behind Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Monday.

The endorsement came as Hillary Clinton's husband and former president Bill Clinton made a stop at Powell's City of Books in downtown Portland before heading across the river in Vancouver to Clark College for a speech in support of his wife's bid for the presidency.

"Hillary Clinton is the fighter Oregon families need in the White House, and I am proud to endorse her candidacy for President," Brown said in a statement. "Hillary and I share a bold, progressive agenda that aims to break down the barriers that hold working families back and ensures that everyone has the same opportunity to succeed."

Hillary Clinton is slated to make appearances at Washington campaign events Tuesday in Seattle and Everett. Her and her husband's visits come after a large rally at Hudson's Bay High School in Vancouver on Sunday held by her opponent Bernie Sanders.

The couple's daughter, Chelsea, will attend an event in Tacoma on Tuesday.

Brown's full statement:

Hillary Clinton is the fighter Oregon families need in the White House and I am proud to endorse her candidacy for President. Hillary and I share a bold, progressive agenda that aims to break down the barriers that hold working families back and ensures that everyone has the same opportunity to succeed. Hillary has spent her career fighting to advance civil rights for all Americans and working towards real solutions to the issues that keep Oregonians up at night. From her commitment to fighting for paid family and medical leave, to her proposal to make Oregon the model for expanding voting rights nationwide, I know that Oregonians can count on Hillary to deliver real results for us as President.
