SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom will travel to Iowa to campaign for Sen. Kamala Harris as she tries to rebound in the Democratic presidential race.

Newsom will visit the first voting state Dec. 14-15 on behalf of Harris, his home-state senator and longtime friend. His visit will come as Harris tries to claw back from single digits in the polls and defy the narrative that her campaign is collapsing ahead of the Feb. 3 caucuses.

In recent weeks her campaign has been beset by a series of negative stories in the media. The New York Times obtained a scathing resignation letter from a staff member who now works for Michael Bloomberg’s campaign.

Newsom’s visit is an example of the public support that Harris still commands from allies in California.
