Days after the Nevada Democratic caucus, Sen. Harry Reid has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president.

Clinton won the caucus over Bernie Sanders in a close race Saturday. Reid declined to make an endorsement that day since he didn't want the focus to go away from the race.

Reid told CNN Wednesday he wants the Democratic party to unite behind Clinton.

"I think the middle class would be better served by Hillary," Reid told CNN.

Reid is now the highest ranking Democrat to endorse the former Secretary of State.
