Harris, Warren compete for support from black female voters

Kamala Harris got a much needed boost this past week when the California senator picked up the endorsement of Higher Heights, the country’s largest political organization aimed at electing black women. A day after Harris’ announcement, the Massachusetts senator won the backing of more than 100 black female activists. The dueling endorsements signal an emerging battle between Warren and Harris for the support of black women, who are the Democratic Party’s most loyal and consistent voters.
