PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Some big names were in Portland on Monday campaigning for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Two-time Olympic figure skating medalist Michelle Kwan and actress Kathleen Turner were at the Clinton headquarters in northeast Portland, where they hosted a phone bank, trying to get voters to support the presidential hopeful.

Kwan told FOX 12 she is supporting Clinton after working with her in the State Department.

"I had the honor to see first hand Secretary Clinton's leadership and vision, so when the opportunity came about to join the campaign I said 'where do I sign up, and how can I help'," said Kwan.

Turner said she is ready to see a woman in the Oval Office.

"I've had it with the men. I think they've done a lousy job and it's time we took over," said Turner. "She's the best qualified candidate since forever."

Turner is also hosting events with Planned Parenthood while in Portland.

Oregon's Democratic Primary will be held on May 17.
