CHULA VISTA – (Thursday, May 2, 2013) – California Attorney General Kamala Harris has endorsed pro-jobs Democrat Lorena Gonzalez's campaign in the May 21 special election for the 80th Assembly District.
As the state’s top law enforcement officer and chief lawyer, Harris has aggressively defended the rights of consumers, fought for homeowner rights in the wake of the foreclosure crisis and combated the transnational trafficking of guns and drugs into California. Harris is the first woman, the first African American and the first South Asian to hold the office of Attorney General in California.
"California needs all the strong, passionate voices for justice it can get and that's exactly why I'm counting on Lorena,” Harris said. “She has proven herself to be a successful consensus-builder even when doing the right thing is tough. That's the sort of courage and leadership we need to keep California on the track to greater success."
