Debra Bowen, our outstanding Secretary of State, will, according to Politico, soon make it official:
California Secretary of State Debra Bowen will announce Tuesday that she is joining the race to succeed former Democratic Rep. Jane Harman, according to a source close to Bowen. (Politico)
To be honest, I can’t imagine anybody that would be a better advocate for her community and all of California. However, that being said, Janice Hahn, the generally liked LA City Council member, already has the endorsement of some heavy hitters, including Dianne Feinstein, and has always been a pretty good fundraiser. Bowen, on the other hand, has never been known as a powerhouse on the campaign cash side of things. Either way, it should be a very interesting race.
Debra Bowen has been an outstanding friend to the netroots, but I’m interested in what others are thinking.
