California Gov. Gavin Newsom endorses Kamala Harris for president

Source: CNN

California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is endorsing Kamala Harris, who represents the Golden State in the US Senate, for president in 2020.

Newsom, a former San Francisco mayor, said in an interview with MSNBC's Chris Hayes on Friday that he has known Harris for decades and she did "an extraordinary job with a very progressive record" as district attorney of San Francisco.

9. I kind of wish no one would endorse until all candidates declare.

At least provide the illusion that you're genuinely considering everyone who is running and selecting who you think will be best out of that field.

3. Californian endorses Californian.

This is about as surprising as Dick Durbin endorsing Obama and Schumer endorsing Clinton.


To be clear I like Sen. Harris. Haven't made a decision about who I'm supporting but she is on my list. All I'm saying is that it isn't surprising.

7. Yeah, but just because

a candidate is from your state doesn't always mean they're going to get your endorsement.

Just saying.. If he didn't think she was presidential material I don't think he would endorse her.

8. What other Democratic governors have endorsed their state's Presidential candidates?

Maybe there is one, but I can't think of any.

And my state's Senators haven't endorsed our Governor, so far, though he's announced he's running.

It's not automatic.

10. Klobuchar and Booker have been endorsed by their states' governors (if wikipedia is right)

Though as I said above, I'd prefer no endorsements until everyone has declared. How can you really say who you feel will be the best for the job, without knowing who all your choices are? I guess at least it's honest, knowing that these people don't care who the other choices are.

5. It seems to me that such early endorsements

aren't very helpful or useful. Just my opinion.

11. Want Emphasis on the Issues First!

This is way too early. It feels like bullying. I would like to hear from every candidate on exactly where they stand on issues. There should be an orderly process where all voices are heard, then a decision and endorsements. Kamala Harris is a great candidate but I want to hear from everyone.
