Rep. Loretta Sanchez will announce her candidacy for the U.S. Senate at a gathering Thursday in Santa Ana.
The Santa Ana Democrat plans to hold a press conference at 11 a.m. at the Santa Ana Train Station, joined by her husband, family and friends.
“Together we will win,” Sanchez wrote in an email to supporters Tuesday obtained by The Sacramento Bee.
The announcement will come a day before California Democrats are scheduled to hold their annual convention in nearby Anaheim. So far, Attorney General Kamala Harris has been the only Democrat to enter the race to succeed U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer.
