Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Sunday picked up a big endorsement for her presidential bid from Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings.

Cummings' endorsement now gives Clinton the backing of every member of Maryland's congressional delegation, The Hill reports.

"I know Hillary Clinton," Cummings said. "I knew her as first lady when she and her husband Bill Clinton led our nation to peace and prosperity." Clinton has also been an advocate for low-income children and families, he said.

Cummings had remained neutral in the Democratic primary process, party because of his roll as ranking Democrat on the committee investigating the attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya. Clinton is a central figure in the investigation.

Maryland votes April 26.
