August 29, 2019 GMT

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris has picked up another endorsement from a Nevada state lawmaker.

Democratic Sen. Melanie Scheible of Las Vegas says in a statement that she’s endorsing Harris because the California senator and former California attorney general “remembers what it means to be a public servant and put people first.”

Scheible, like Harris, has a prosecutor background. She is a deputy district attorney in Clark County.

Harris has also won the backing of three other Democratic state lawmakers: Sens: Joyce Woodhouse and Pat Spearman and Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui.
