The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is staying out of California’s U.S. Senate race to replace Sen. Barbara Boxer, so neither state Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris nor Rep. Loretta Sanchez of Orange are expected on the stage tonight when the committee recognizes those running for office.
Harris will be in the convention hall during Thursday’s proceedings, her staff said. Sanchez flew back to California Wednesday, according to her staff.
California’s top-two primary pitted two Democrats against one another in a Senate race for the first time in state history, creating a unique dance as party faithful weigh whether to pick sides in the race.
