California Attorney General Kamala Harris on Monday endorsed Sandra Fluke in her campaign for the coastal South Bay state Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Ted Lieu.
“Sandra truly understands the vitally important intersection of public safety and social justice,” Harris said. “Her experience protecting victims of human trafficking and domestic violence, paired with her committed work on civil rights, will serve her constituents — and all Californians — very well.”
Fluke is battling with Ben Allen, a Santa Monica-Malibu school board member, in the Nov. 4 election to replace Lieu in the 26th Senate District, which stretches from the Palos Verdes Peninsula to Hollywood. Both are Democrats.
Lieu is vacating his Senate seat to run for Congress.
