Columbia – Governor Roger Wilson announced his endorsement of House Minority Leader Jeff Harris for Attorney General today in Columbia. Wilson, who most recently served as Missouri Democratic Party Chairman, said he’s endorsing Harris now, more than a year out from the 2008 elections, because “Democrats need to elect the next generation of leaders, and Jeff, at 42 years old, represents what’s best about that generation.”
Jeff will be our next Attorney General because he has a message that will appeal statewide. “As Attorney General, count on Jeff to initiate new efforts to keep Missouri families safe in their communities and on the Internet, to crack down on consumer fraud and to defend the environment from polluters,” Wilson said.
“Governor Roger Wilson is a leader of the Democratic Party and one of the finest public servants in our state’s history,” Harris said. “I am truly honored to have earned his endorsement.”
Jeff Harris was the first Democrat to announce his candidacy for Attorney General. Harris is currently a member of the Missouri House and represents part of Columbia – which is also the hometown of Governor Wilson. Harris has served as House Democratic Leader and has a proven record of standing up for Democratic values and fighting for working families.
