Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., announced her endorsement of Hillary Clinton for president today.

According to The Hill, Feinstein said, "Hillary Clinton, I believe, has the experience, the heart and the strength to be a great American president. There has been no election for president where change is as defined and necessary as this one. The question is who is best equipped to lead that change. I believe it is Hillary."

Clinton, in response, said in a press statement: "Dianne and I have fought side by side in the Senate to expand stem cell research, to take care of our veterans when they return home and to stop the privatization of Social Security ... Dianne is such a respected voice in the Senate, I'm honored to have her support as we work together to bring the war in Iraq to an end and deliver the change this country wants."

Last week, Clinton received an endorsement from former ambassador Joseph Wilson.
