NAHREP Urges CA Governor to appoint first CA Latino to U.S. Senate
NAHREP, along with the Latino Donor Collaborate and the UCLA Latino Policy and Politics Initiative, co-lead a broad coalition urging California Governor Gavin Newsom to make a historic appointment by selecting a Latino to fill the vacancy left by United States Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Prior to this election, only nine Latinos have served in the U.S. Senate, and none have represented the state of California. Nationally, Latinos represent over 60 million Americans; with more Latinos living in the state of California than in any other state in the country. It is time to ensure that California’s voice in the U.S. Senate provides descriptive and substantive representation to the state’s plurality population.
