Kamala Harris

Kamala
Harris

Kamala Harris is the junior Senator from California and has made a name for herself with some incredible interrogations during Senate committee meetings. She was elected to the Senate in 2017 after serving as the state’s Attorney General from 2011 to 2017. Before that, she was the District Attorney of San Francisco from 2004 to 2011, and was a deputy district attorney in Alameda County, CA from 1990-1998. She loves to cook as much as she loves to legislate, and is known for swapping recipes with voters on the campaign trail. Truly, can you imagine Donald Trump trying to boil an egg? Fun to imagine. Harris earned her B.A. at Howard University and J.D. at the University of California, Hastings. Learn more about Senator Harris below:
