Khanna praised Lee for her progressive values and record as one of Congress's most outspoken champions of justice. He expressed his excitement and pride in endorsing Lee for U.S. Senate, stating that she is the kind of leader Californians need now.
Lee responded to the endorsement with gratitude, promising to always stand up for progressive values and be a voice for marginalized communities. She has also received endorsements from California Attorney General Rob Bonta and state Controller Malia Cohen, among others.
Khanna's endorsement has put to rest any speculation that he might run for the seat being vacated by Senator Dianne Feinstein. Instead, he has thrown his support behind Lee and her campaign for U.S. Senate.
Overall, Khanna's endorsement is a significant development in Lee's campaign, highlighting the growing support and momentum behind her bid for U.S. Senate. With progressive values at the forefront of her campaign, Lee is positioning herself as a strong contender for the Democratic nomination.
