Despite calls from some Democrats for Hillary Clinton step back from the spotlight, the former secretary of state has decided to endorse multiple Democratic candidates leading up to the midterm elections in November.

J.B. Pritzker

Clinton endorsed J.B. Pritzker for governor of Illinois during a speech last month, the Chicago Tribune reports. He won the primary and will go up against the incumbent, Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner.

Stacey Abrams

The former first lady recorded a robocall Monday endorsing Stacey Abrams for governor of Georgia. If elected, she’d be the first female black governor in U.S. history. Abrams previously served as the state’s House minority leader.

The call recorded Clinton saying, “Abrams is the only candidate with bold new plans to ensure Georgians have access to good jobs, quality public schools, affordable child care and higher education.”

Lucy McBath

Clinton also tweeted out her support for Lucy McBath, who is running in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District. McBath is one of four people vying for the Democratic nomination, with the primary vote taking place today. She is the only woman and person of color out of all of the candidates jockeying for the nomination to run against incumbent, Republican Rep. Karen Handel.

McBath has been a big supporter of gun legislation after her son was murdered in 2012.

Andrew Cuomo

Additionally, Clinton is scheduled to speak at the New York Democratic convention, where she will endorse Andrew Cuomo for a third term as governor, on Wednesday. Cuomo faces a challenger — former “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon — for the Democratic nomination even as the incumbent.
