Proud to support my friend Xavier Becerra as he stepped up to become California's Attorney General, and proud to endorse him for re-election now.
After Kamala Harris's election to the U.S. Senate, Governor Brown appointed Xavier Becerra to fill her shoes as our state Attorney General. He has done a fine job leading the resistance to Trump in California, and across the country. Xavier has filed over two dozen lawsuits, on every issue that matters to Californians from immigration to health care and environmental policy. He is standing up for us, and standing up to Trump every day.
Xavier Becerra has also made history as California's first Latino Attorney General. He's the son of working class Mexican immigrants, and became the first in his family to graduate from college. He has not forgotten his roots, and continues to fight for working Californians every day.
Xavier has served the public for more than two decades, as a deputy attorney general in the California Department of Justice from 1987 to 1990, then elected to the state assembly in 1990 and going on to serve in Congress until last year. He now fights for us in Sacramento as Attorney General.
"Dime con quién andas y te diré quién eres. Tell me with whom you walk, and I’ll tell you who you are." I am proud to walk with Xavier Becerra.
