West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin is endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.

The Democratic governor announced his support Friday.

In a news release, Tomblin said he remains concerned about some of Clinton's positions on fossil fuels.

But he said Clinton is the best choice to unite the Democratic Party and the country.

Tomblin said he has talked with former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton's campaign. He believes she is committed to working with West Virginia to diversify its economy and find ways to use the state's coal and natural gas.

Clinton is scheduled to visit Williamson, West Virginia, on Monday and another, yet-to-be-named part of the state on Tuesday.
