Spotlight on Leadership:

Kamala Harris for U.S. Senate


Kamala D. Harris is an outstanding candidate for U.S. Senate in California. She is the state’s Attorney General and the first woman, the first African American, and the first South Asian to hold the office in the history of the state. Throughout her career, she has worked to bring smart, innovative, and effective approaches to fighting crime, fighting for consumers, and fighting for equal rights. Following the national mortgage crisis, she secured more than $20 billion for struggling California homeowners from the nation’s banks and wrote the nation’s most comprehensive package of foreclosure reforms. Kamala is an impressive candidate, who will build on Senator Barbara Boxer’s legacy of strong progressive leadership as the next U.S. Senator from California.
