I am thrilled to share that our United States Senator Kamala Harris has endorsed my campaign for re-election as Secretary of State.
Senator Harris has been a fearless fighter in the Senate on behalf of Californians, and I am honored by her support. She has been out front on issues that are central to our values – protecting DACA, ensuring access to healthcare for everyone, and protecting our nation’s security. I am proud of the work she has done so far in Washington, and I am humbled by her endorsement.
Here is what Senator Harris had to say about my candidacy:
“Secretary Padilla is a valuable and tireless partner in our effort to address election threats and protect Californians. He stopped this Administration from raiding California’s voter rolls and continues to be a national leader to ensure all voters can make their voice heard, without interference. This is a critical time in our country and we need Secretary Padilla’s experience, track record, and dedication to his office. I am proud to endorse him in this race.”
Working together, we will send a loud and clear message that we will not hesitate to stand up to Trump and to stand up to defend our democracy.
