Attorney General Harris calls Doug Applegate "The leader we need in Congress"

San Diego, CA - Doug Applegate today received the endorsement of California Attorney General and candidate for United States Senate Kamala Harris.

"Marine Colonel Doug Applegate is the leader California needs in the House of Representatives," said Harris. "Californians are tired of the political rhetoric that attempts to pit entire communities against each other, and they are frustrated by politicians in Washington who prioritize divisive political fights over passing legislation and getting things done. Doug knows what it means to put the people of California and this country first, and I'm proud to endorse his campaign."

In 1974, Applegate joined the United States Marine Corps, just a few months before the fall of Saigon. Initially serving as an Infantry Officer, Applegate went on to become a Judge Advocate. From there, Applegate has had a successful career as both a small business owner and an attorney, while continuing to serve his country in the Marine Corps Reserve. Applegate retired from the Corps in 2006 after 32 years of service, both active and reserve.

"I am honored to receive this important endorsement. Kamala Harris has served our state well and I know she will take those same attributes that have made her such an effective Attorney General to the Senate. I greatly admire what she has done for the people of our state and, if elected, I look forward to working with her in Congress," said Colonel Applegate.
