    LeBron James, the most famous man in the critical swing state, endorsed Hillary Clinton Sunday.

    James said he believes Clinton "will build on the legacy of my good friend, President Barack Obama. I believe in what President Obama has done for our country and support her commitment to continuing that legacy."
