All of California's Democrats in Congress now back Hillary Clinton for president
All 39 Democrats in California’s House delegation now back former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid after the endorsements of Democratic Reps. Barbara Lee of Oakland and Alan Lowenthal of Long Beach.
Lee said as a member of the committee writing the party’s platform, she didn’t want to look like she was picking sides.
“After much discussion and close collaboration between the campaigns, I am confident that Hillary Clinton will unite the party around the progressive issues outlined in the platform. That, along with the fact that she is by far the most qualified candidate — male or female — to ever seek our country's highest office is why I am proud to endorse Hillary Clinton to be our next president,” Lee said in a statement.
