Mikulski Joins Clinton Team

Sen. Barbara Mikulski will serve as a co-chairwoman of Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign, the Maryland Democrat announced yesterday.

"Hillary is the leader who will put this nation back on track, whether it's ending the war in Iraq, providing educational opportunities for our children, restoring our standing in the world or addressing our increasing deficit," Mikulski said in a statement. "She works every day to advance women's rights, by standing up for the women's basketball team at Rutgers and leading the legislative effort for equal pay to become a reality for women."

Elected to the Senate in 1986, Mikulski previously served 10 years a congresswoman from the Baltimore area. She was the first Democratic woman elected to the Senate in her own right. Clinton, the former first lady, was elected a senator from New York in 2000 and won re-election last year.
