Mazie Hirono will head to Iowa this weekend to campaign for Hillary Clinton.

The U.S. senator will join Democratic Sens. Tammy Baldwin (Wisconsin), Amy Klobuchar (Minnesota) and Claire McCaskill (Missouri) on Friday and Saturday.

The senators, supporters and volunteers will travel across Eastern Iowa “to discuss what’s at stake for Iowa women and families in this election,” the campaign says, according to The Hill.

“The Senators will discuss Hillary Clinton’s commitment to moving America forward by guaranteeing women’s right to make their own healthcare choices,” the campaign adds.

The Iowa Caucus is Feb. 1. Clinton’s opponents are Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Martin O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland.

In November, Hirono joined 12 of her Democratic colleagues at a Washington, D.C., fundraiser on behalf of the presidential frontrunner.

Also in November, Hawaii’s other senator, Brian Schatz, campaigned for Clinton in New England.
