SACRAMENTO — President Barack Obama praised California's attorney general for more than her smarts and toughness at a Democratic Party event.
The president also commended Kamala Harris on Thursday for being "the best-looking attorney general" during a Democratic fundraising lunch in the Silicon Valley.
"She's brilliant and she's dedicated, she's tough. ... She also happens to be, by far, the best-looking attorney general," Obama said during the Democratic National Committee luncheon in Atherton.
"It's true! C'mon," he continued as the crowd laughed, according to a pool report by Todd Gillman of the Dallas Morning News.
Eight other states also have female attorneys general, according to the National Association of Attorneys General website.
