Democratic candidate for governor, Terry McAuliffe has Hillary Clinton's stamp of approval. The former Secretary of State officially endorsed McAuliffe at a campaign event in Falls Church Saturday afternoon.

Clinton called McAuliffe a good friend and said his political policies are what the state needs to move forward.

"The whole country is watching this election," Clinton told the crowd. "Watching to see whether the voters of Virginia lead the way of turning from divisive politics, getting back to common sense and common ground."

McAuliffe and the Clintons have a long personal history. McAuliffe was President Bill Clintons top fundraiser.

"Even if I had never met Terry and Dorothy, even if I didn't know him to be a man of uncommon generosity and goodness, I would still be supporting him for your governor," Clinton said. "Because I believe Terry has what it takes to lead Virginia forward in this rapidly changing world."

The event was part of of a "Women for Terry" campaign event.
