House Assistant Democratic Leader Jim Clyburn (D-SC-6) last week announced that he is throwing his support behind Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA-12) in her race to replace U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein who is not seeking re-elections.
“She stands by what she believes in, and she doesn’t back down. In the House, she is an extremely accomplished legislator with a record of delivering historical achievement to end poverty, eradicate HIV and AIDS, and work for global peace and security,” said Clyburn.
Lee is running against Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA-47) and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA-30).
Contra Costa County District Attorney Dianne Becton and San Francisco Mayor London Breed also recently held Bay Area rallies pledging their support. One of the rallies was held at the African American Art & Culture Complex in San Francisco’s Fillmore district.
