Citing her experience with gun laws, one of the largest gun safety advocacy groups in the nation has endorsed state Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris in the Senate race in California.
"In Kamala Harris, Californians have found the only Senate candidate they can trust to stand up to the corporate gun lobby and disarm the hate that kills thousands of Americans every year," Dan Gross, the president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said in a statement. "We know she'll walk the walk, she's done it her entire career. As attorney general, Harris worked alongside the Brady Campaign's 27 California chapters to spearhead a record-setting program to get and keep guns out of dangerous hands, no doubt saving lives."
In the November election, California voters will choose between two Democrats to replace retiring Sen. Barbara Boxer — Harris and Rep. Loretta Sanchez.
