Billie Jean King, famous for her 1973 victory over Bobby Riggs in the legendary "Battle of the Sexes" tennis match-up, has endorsed Hillary Clinton to be the next president. The endorsement came as part of a "Day of Women's Outreach" organized by the Clinton campaign.


"As a young woman, mother, advocate, First Lady and Senator she has continually shown us she is passionate about improving family issues, healthcare, equal pay and the challenges that people all across this nation face on a daily basis,” King said. “Hillary and I both believe strongly in equal rights and opportunities for all people. She is a winner and I am standing beside her because she has the vision, the drive and the knowledge to lead this country.” 



Clinton also picked up the support of the National Organization for Women. More on the "Battle of the Sexes" [here].
