Kathleen Sebelius endorses Hillary Clinton

Former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius endorsed Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination Monday, the Topeka Capital-Journal reports.

"As a mother, a grandmother, and a former public servant who had the privilege of serving with Hillary in the president's cabinet, I can think of nothing more important than ensuring our next president is someone who will protect and build upon the progress made by President Obama over the past eight years," the former governor of Kansas said.

In 2008, Sebelius endorsed Obama over Clinton. She resigned from her secretary post in 2014 after overseeing the implementation of Healthcare.gov.

Democrats in Kansas are set to caucus March 5.
