Harris faces fellow Democrat Loretta Sanchez, a 10- term Congresswoman in the November polls. Given that California is a Democratic state, Obama’s endorsement virtually seals her victory.
Vice President Biden said the Senate “needs people like her - leaders who will always fight to make a difference and who never forget where they come from.”
Welcoming the support from the country’s top leaders, Harris said, “I am honored to receive the support of the President and Vice President, two leaders who have worked tirelessly to improve life for our families and get results for all people.”
“They are incredible leaders for our nation, and I look forward to our continued work together in the months and years ahead.”
