Congressional hopeful Janice Hahn picked up an endorsement from another area Democrat over the long weekend: state Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance.
Lieu was elected last week to serve in the 28th Senate District, which overlaps with the 36th Congressional District Hahn is vying to represent. He previously represented the area in the Assembly for six years.
"Having served in local office for ten years, Janice Hahn truly grasps the issues facing the people of the 36th Congressional District," Lieu said in a statement released yesterday. "I have worked with Janice on many issues and she has proven to be a fighter for the people she represents. I know she will continue to fight for us in Washington."
Hahn, a Democrat and member of the Los Angeles City council, is seeking to replace outgoing Democratic Rep. Jane Harman. Secretary of State Debra Bowen, also a Democrat, and Redondo Beach City Attorney Mike Webb, a Republican, also are running.
