Citing their long friendship and shared experiences in San Francisco and Sacramento, Sen. Kamala Harris on Friday endorsed Gavin Newsom in the governor’s race.

“Gavin and I have been friends for a very long time. We were friends before either of us held elected office,” Harris told Newsom supporters at the University of Southern California. “All of those experiences together lead me to today endorse him to be the next governor.”

Harris cited Newsom’s work as an early advocate of same-sex marriage and universal healthcare as reasons for her decision.

“At this moment in time particularly, California leadership is about national leadership,” she said. “What we do here is a role model of what can be done around the country to reject false choices, to stand on principle and to have the courage to do the right thing always.”
