Senate Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling has endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Shilling, a La Crosse Democrat, called the former secretary of state “a fearless advocate for women, children and working families” and said Clinton is the leader she most trusts “to advance our shared progressive values.”

Clinton, who has also racked up endorsements from U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Rep. Gwen Moore of Milwaukee, has opened campaign offices in Madison and Milwaukee.

Candidates from both parties have focused attention on the Badger state in advance of the April 5 primary.

Clinton’s Democratic rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, has also opened three campaign offices, as has Republican front runner Donald Trump.
