Sen. Kamala Harris on Saturday secured a key endorsement in the early caucus state of Iowa.
State political heavyweights Sue and Bob Dvorsky announced they would support the California Democratic senator for president in 2020 and would join her on stage at the Iowa State Fair later Saturday.
“We’ve listened. We’ve read. We’ve attended. We believe with many of our friends and neighbors that we must get this right. And we are supporting Kamala Harris for President of the United States,” the Dvorskys said in a news release.
Sue Dvorsky, a former Iowa Democratic Party chair, and her husband, Bob, a former longtime state senator, backed Barack Obama in 2007 and Hillary Clinton in 2016.
The Dvorskys were awarded the Iowa Beacon award at Friday night’s Wing Ding, where the Democratic field presented their case to caucus voters during a weekend of activities surrounding the Iowa fair, a staple of presidential politicking.
Harris said in the release: “I am honored to have Bob and Sue on my team. They are a powerhouse duo who have done so much to elect Iowa Democrats for decades. Their guidance will be critical as we continue to build a campaign that takes our 3 AM Agenda across Iowa.”
