Kamala Harris romps across California ballot

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/06/08/kamala-harris-ballots-california-634119

LOS ANGELES — California Sen. Kamala Harris wasn’t on the ballot this week in her home state, but she still notched a significant set of victories.

Of 27 candidates Harris endorsed in Tuesday primary, 20 finished first or were leading in returns as of Friday, while another four finished second and will advance to the November general election.


Just three Democrats backed by Harris lost or were heading to likely defeats, with elections officials still counting provisional and mail-in ballots.

Her heavy hand in California’s primary — involving Democrats at all levels here — reflects the freshman senator’s concerted emphasis on home-state maintenance, even as she travels throughout the country raising money for Democrats in higher-profile contests and expands her still-budding political network ahead of a potential presidential campaign.

33. I want to like her, but her hand in Franken's resignation troubles me

Has she ever explained her stance on that? Am I wrong that she joined the chorus for his ouster?

I love her. Concentrating on her home state that elected her to represent them and still travels the country raising money for Democrats. Dayum. She is a true Democrat firmly grounded in her party and it's future.

6. Senator Harris just endorsed a candidate attacked by Our Revolution

This makes me smile https://secure.actblue.com/donate/kamalaendorsement

Senator Kamala Harris is a beacon of leadership for all of us who care about the rule of law and who care about having elected representatives who are compassionate, reasonable, and decent towards their fellow citizens.

She is one of the people who inspired me to run for office, and I am proud to accept her endorsement. I will continue to lead the charge in standing up against the tide of hostility and anger and always listen to the concerns of those in our district. Show your support and donate right now to help our campaign lead this change.

This endorsement is meaningful as compared to the attacks on Sri by Our Revolution

32. Mine, as well. And my pick for next POTUS.

If we want high Democratic turnout in 2020, we'd do well to nominate Harris. For VP, I like Sherrod Brown or Chris Murphy.

20. But I saw here just an hour or so ago that of the top candidates, Sanders was #1. Of course....

....that was one man's unilateral opinion and three months ago.

25. That's what I've been thinking - Harris/Brown or Brown/Harris

Both progressive, Sherrod Brown would strengthen the ticket in the rust belt, Kamala Harris would maximize minority/youth turnout. They would both argue a positive, but forceful attack against Trump.

23. Happy to vote for Harris endorsed Eleni. She made it onto Nov ballot for Lt. Gov

And got the most votes by roughly 100,000. Another Democrat placed second. Life is good.

I actually get goosebumps thinking about her as the Democratic nominee for POTUS.

LANDSLIDE!!! WOMAN-DATE (female version of a mandate).

34. Senator Harris just endorsed Sri Preston Kulkarni-the candidate attacked by Our Revolution

This endorsement is meaningful as compared to Our Revolution. Sri was the candidate attacked by Our Revolution because he is Asian and had a funny first name. Sanders endorsements are not carrying any weight in the real world but candidates are happy to be endorsed by Senator Harris
