Schumer endorses Clinton for 2016 race

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

New York Senator Chuck Schumer is endorsing Hillary Clinton for the 2016 presidential race, even though she hasn't said she is running.

Schumer was headlining the Iowa Democratic Party's biggest fundraiser of the year Saturday when he made the announcement.

He told Democrats in the swing state that he thinks 2016 is Hillary's time and says if she wins, they all win.

"It's time for a woman to be president. And so... tonight here in Iowa, and I won't get this opportunity again. I am urging Hillary Clinton to run for president. And when she does - she will have my full and unwavering support," he said.

Schumer also said Clinton is qualified for the job and would be the right person to beat the Tea Party.
