Attorney General Kamala Harris, candidate for U.S. Senate in California, has received the endorsement of the Congressional Black Caucus Political Action Committee (CBCPAC).
CBCPAC works to increase the number of African Americans in the U.S. Congress, support non-black candidates that champion the interests of African Americans, and promote African American participation in the political process-with an emphasis on young voters. The endorsement was announced at a CBCPAC retreat in Southern California.
“I am honored to have the support of the Congressional Black Caucus’ Political Action Committee,” said Harris. “I look forward to working closely with its members in Washington as I continue to fight for California families in the Senate.”
Harris has received support from groups and individuals in California and across the nation, including Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Congresswoman Karen Bass, Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson, Los Angeles City Councilmember Curren Price, Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia, Civil Rights leader Dolores Huerta, SEIU California and AFSCME.
