Warren responded to the endorsement via her campaign saying, "I'm incredibly grateful to have the support of Judge Hidalgo, who has been a forceful and persistent champion for Harris County by working to ensure that the government is transparent, accessible, and accountable to every single resident. We're in this fight together to create big, structural change -- and that means building a movement that makes our government work everyone, in Harris County, across Texas, and throughout our country."
