 ALEX ROOKER TRIUMPHS, RE-ELECTED VICE CHAIR OF CA DEM PARTY 

SACRAMENTO, CA — Tonight, Alex Rooker was re-elected First Vice Chair of the California Democratic Party. The vote took place at the California Democratic Party’s convention at the Sacramento Convention Center.

Alex Rooker, the newly re-elected First Vice Chair of the California Democratic Party stated:

“I am extraordinarily grateful for the confidence placed in me by the delegates of our California Democratic Party. I’d like to thank my supporters from the bottom of my heart. Their support is a testament to the enormous progress that we Democrats have made in recent years, and it represents a bold validation of our accomplishments here in the Golden State – from equal pay to safeguards for workers’ rights, to tough environment laws, a $15 minimum wage to protections for immigrants and more.

“I am profoundly honored to have been re-elected as our state Party’s First Vice Chair and I’m eager to continue pushing for progressive, forward-thinking policies in California, while simultaneously working to ensure that our state takes center stage in the battle against the reckless and xenophobic Trump Administration, fighting tooth and nail against its backwards agenda.”

A positive development on Trump-Russia

Kamala Harris

Yesterday’s announcement by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that he was appointing a special counsel to oversee the FBI investigation into links between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials was a positive development.

Over the last several weeks, nearly 600,000 of you have taken action with our campaign on this issue—from demanding Sessions recuse himself to fighting for the appointment of this special counsel. This victory was a result of your voices and actions.

However, this fight is far from over. I will continue to do everything in my power to learn the unfettered truth and ensure this investigation has the resources it needs and is uninhibited by political influence from the White House. I’ll also continue to keep you updated with action alerts on how you can make a difference.

It’s been a crazy week. Take a deep breath. With each morning bringing some new and troubling development in the Trump-Russia investigation, we can’t be overwhelmed at a time that requires us to fight.

There’s so much ahead of us—including stopping the Republican health care plan and opposing Sessions’ renewed War on Drugs. Let’s continue to fight for our shared values.

Thanks for everything you do.

Kamala Harris
U.S. Senator, California
