Rep. Loretta Sanchez bounces back from past comments to receive Muslim group's co-endorsement for U.S. Senate
by Phil Willon
Orange County Rep. Loretta Sanchez, who was criticized by Muslim groups last year after a comment about Muslims' support for establishing a strict Islamic state, appears to have made amends.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations California issued a co-endorsement in California's U.S. Senate race for both Sanchez and her rival, fellow Democrat state Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris.
"For 20 years I have stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the Muslim American community and I am truly humbled and honored to have their support for United States Senate," Sanchez said in a statement released Friday.
