Rep. Al Green, a Democrat from Houston, is throwing his support behind Kamala Harris for president, bucking two home-state Democrats and a fellow member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Green, an eight-term congressman and one of the most outspoken advocates for impeaching President Donald Trump, is the first member of the Congressional Black Caucus to endorse a presidential candidate from outside of their home state — other than the handful of CBC officials who have come out for 2020 front-runner Joe Biden.

An early supporter of Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton in 2007, Green in a statement to POLITICO pointed to Harris’ new immigration plan providing a path to citizenship for Dreamers, as well as her work as state attorney general securing billions from banks in a foreclosure settlement. Green called her “one of the foremost opponents in the Senate to the corruption of this administration.“

“Kamala Harris represents the future of our nation," Green added.

Like Green, Harris also backs starting impeachment proceedings. In a prepared statement on his endorsement, she nodded to the quest, adding that “no one is above the law.”

Harris has been working the CBC, including members who ultimately sided with Biden. Green’s support could give her entree to officials and activists in Harris County, Texas, an area of focus given its large share of black voters in a state that’s holding its vote on Super Tuesday. Green is also the first black man in Congress to line up behind Harris, following an early endorsement from Rep. Barbara Lee of California.

Last month, Harris shot back at a suggestion that emerged from within the CBC that she would make a perfect running-mate for the former vice president. “As vice president, he’s proven that he knows how to do the job,” Harris said, making light of the story without fingering the caucus or its membership.

Biden, whose CBC supporters include Reps. Cedric Richmond, Al Lawson, Lisa Blunt Rochester and Donald McEachin, was close with several CBC members and hosted an annual dinner with the caucus at his home in observance of Black History Month.
