The Hillary Clinton campaign announced 40 new endorsements by Republicans and independents on Thursday.

In a conference call with reporters, campaign chairman John Podesta said, “The growing group of Republicans and independents who are backing Hillary is a testament to how important the choice is in this election,” The Hill reported.

“It’s really not about Republicans or Democrats. It’s about what country we will be, it’s about our children’s future and which candidate can bring people together to get things done, which candidate is fit to serve the office of president and commander in chief,” he said.

The endorsements were the latest results from the group Together for America, which brought in 50 endorsements in August.
