"Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.), who has made an overhaul of the justice
system a cornerstone of his campaign for president, was among Boudin’s

the failed war on drugs and the criminalization of poverty," Sanders tweeted
<https://twitter.com/BernieSanders/status/1193337033500037120> Saturday.
"Congratulations @chesaboudin on your historic victory!”


"The race for San Francisco’s district attorney kicked off in fall 2018
when then-district attorney George Gascón, himself a progressive, announced

"As recently as a few years ago, Loftus might have been a shoo-in for the

Gov. Gavin Newsom and Sens. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) and Dianne
Feinstein (D-Calif.)."



Boudin is the son of Weatherpeople David Gilbert and Kathy Boudin who was
adopted and raised by William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.
