“Given our shared passion for addressing challenges like climate change and promoting policies to strengthen America’s future generations, I am encouraging Hillary Clinton to run for president, and I’m ready to support her the moment she announces her decision, ” Schatz said in a statement.

Schatz, who has been at the forefront of environmental issues, said he’s supporting Clinton because of the way she addresses climate change, Hawaii News Now said.

“As a U.S. Senator and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton’s commitment to protecting our country and our planet from the threat of climate change was both genuine and deep, ” he said.

“Secretary Clinton literally changed the way America approaches climate change, putting global warming at the center of U.S. foreign policy, holding other nations and their leaders accountable for their carbon emissions, and even appointing a Special Envoy for Climate Change at the State Department.”

Schatz also encouraged his supporters to sign join him in the national grassroots effort, Ready for Hillary, the report said.

Clinton, the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state, is widely perceived to be the frontrunner for the Democratic Party in the next presidential contest, Honolulu Civil Beat said.

Clinton has yet to declare an intention to seek the presidency, but a campaign it is considered such a foregone conclusion that 27 out of the 46 senators in the Democratic caucus have already endorsed her, CNN said.

Ready for Hillary, the pro-Clinton super PAC that has urged Clinton to run since 2013, has been the force behind seventeen of these endorsements, CNN said.

“We’ve been fortunate to have prominent Democrats lend their credibility, their star power and their grassroots networks to help build a list of millions of Hillary supporters, ” group spokesman Seth Bringman said, according to CNN.

The list of senators who have endorsed Clinton includes Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, Barbara Boxer of California, Dianne Feinstein of California, Al Franken of Minnesota, Kirsten Gillibrand and Charles Schumer of New York, Patrick Leahy of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, CNN said.
