DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller and Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald are endorsing Democrat Bruce Braley for U.S. Senate.

Miller and Fitzgerald are both Democrats. They announced their support for Braley in a press release Thursday. In the statement Miller says "Braley fights for Iowa, plain and simple."

Braley announced last month that he'd seek the Senate seat held for decades by Democrat Tom Harkin, who won't seek re-election. The 54-year-old Braley is a four-term House member from Waterloo.

Braley also has been endorsed by Iowa Democratic Congressman Dave Loebsack and by former Democratic Iowa congressman Leonard Boswell
