The Sacramento Bee talks to Courage Campaign About Boxer’s Open Senate Seat and Kamala Harris

Eddie Kurtz, executive director of the liberal Courage Campaign, said progressives are starved for a candidate who represents economic populism and wants more corporate accountability. Harris has shown a willingness to take on banks and demonstrated support for criminal justice reform. Kurtz said he’s encouraged, but he wants to hear more of her positions, possibly in a contested primary. “Our search is for the person who can fill Barbara Boxer’s shoes and take Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s message to Californians,” he said.
