In a conference call with New Hampshire reporters, former New Hampshire Democractic Chairwoman Kathy Sullivan endorsed Hillary Clinton for president.
Sullivan will serve as New Hampshire co-chair and said she is supporting Hillary because "she's the best person to be president."
"I'm not supporting Hillary because she's a woman, I'm supporting Hillary because she will make the best president and be the best democratic nominee," she added.
When asked about her endorsement, Sullivan joked "I am not really that important."
Dante Scala, professor at UNH-Durham, said that the Sullivan endorsement is important because she is "very well-connected." Yet, he cautioned that "it all depends on how active she (Sullivan) is."
