Attorney General Maura Healey on Thursday announced her endorsement of Hillary Clinton for the Democratic party’s presidential nomination and said she plans to “be working hard this year and next” to put Clinton in the White House.

“It’s time we broke that highest and hardest glass ceiling. It’s time for an economy that works for everyone, for pay equity, for higher education that’s affordable for all Americans,” Healey wrote in an email to supporters. “It’s time for Hillary Clinton.”

Healey, a New Hampshire native who captured the attorney general’s office with her maiden campaign, will canvass for Clinton in Exeter, N.H., on August 29 and invited her own political supporters to join her.

The Charlestown Democrat said she supports Clinton because the former secretary of state is “a leader who is willing to take on the big guys to protect the rest of us.”

“Hillary Clinton shares my vision for what America can be, she shares our values as Democrats and she’s the right leader at the right time,” Healey wrote. “We’ve come too far for equality, for human rights, for economic justice to go backward.”
