Tribal leaders throw pre-caucus support to Hillary Clinton


A lineup of tribal leaders from across Washington has thrown its support to Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy on the eve of Washington's Democratic presidential caucuses.

The support was solidified after a Tuesday roundtable at the Puyallup Indian Reservation in which the ex-secretary of state met with leaders of 19 tribes from the state's Native American community.

"From her work on the Indian Health Care Improvement Act and Children's Health Insurance Program, to supporting the United States' role in the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Hillary has long been by our side," said Swinomish Tribal Community chair Brian Cladoosby.
