Senator Sherrod Brown endorsed Hillary Clinton for president Tuesday, giving the Democratic front-runner a boost from a progressive lawmaker in a key swing state (Ohio).

Brown is a natural ideological ally of Sen. Bernie Sanders from Vermont, Clinton’s main competitor in the primary, and the two have worked together on issues like trade and banking.

Clinton, however, has been putting out a slew of progressive policy proposals, recently coming out against the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal — which Brown opposes — and releasing a Wall Street reform plan.

“From opposing unfair trade deals to fighting for a fair financial system, Hillary Clinton has shown she puts working families first,” Brown said in a statement to Cleveland.com. “She knows as president that her first job will be creating jobs for the middle class. I am proud to endorse her today because I know she will keep Ohio moving forward.”

Brown stayed neutral for much of the Democratic primary season in the 2008 election cycle. He waited until June 2008 to endorse Barack Obama.
