On Tuesday, Steve Harvey announced his endorsement for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, saying that she would be the best candidate to continue the legacy of current president Barack Obama.
“She has fought for social justice, equality and policies that expand civil rights and economic opportunity out there,” he said on the “Steve Harvey Morning Show.”
“As President, you really plan on building on the progress that President Obama has made to deliver some real results for a lot of Americans, including African-Americans,” Harvey said. “And I’m endorsing you as my candidate for President of the United States and I just think that you’re going to just do the right thing for the majority of the people in this country.”
Clinton thanked Harvey for his support and praised him for his efforts to raise issues important to the African-American community such as voting rights and the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.
“This means so much to me, Steve,” Clinton said. “It really is very much an honor to have your support and your endorsement because you try to bring issues as controversial as gun control and voting rights and so much else to people’s attention. And I really appreciate that.”
