There are going to be more of these.
Now that the field has been cleared of established Democratic challengers to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's nomination, the holdout members of the congressional delegation are going to be expressing their support for the senator, as Representative Eliot Engel just did.
Here's Engel's statement, which was sent out by Gillibrand's office, along with the endorsements of other legislators and officials.
"Over the past seven months, Kirsten has brought a new, innovative approach to the new problems that New York families are facing in these tough economic times. She's fighting to make health care affordable, create new good-paying jobs and rebuild our economy for real, long-term strength. She's the voice and the partner that families in my district need in the U.S. Senate, and that's why I'm proud to endorse her campaign."
