Rising star among California Democrats takes stage at convention

Attorney General Harris speaks at the 2014 California Democrats State Convention at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los AngelesBy Sharon Bernstein LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – California Attorney General Kamala Harris sought to engage and energize fellow Democrats on Saturday and warned them not to become complacent with their domination of state politics. A rising star widely expected to seek higher office, Harris, 49, urged Democrats to “stay awake” at her party’s annual convention in Los Angeles, drawing a standing ovation as she urged attention to civil rights issues and consumer protection. Let’s stay awake,” she warned Democrats, whose party holds about two-thirds of seats in the state legislature as well as the posts of governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state and attorney general. Harris, who served as district attorney of San Francisco before being elected attorney general in 2010, is heading into her re-election bid with a $3 million war chest and little opposition.
