Here’s who could fill Kamala Harris’s Senate seat if she becomes VP

A Biden-Harris victory in November would shake up California politics, starting with a race to fill a vacant Senate seat.

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s selection of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as his running mate on Tuesday means that a number of current and former members of California’s congressional delegation could be in line for promotions if Democrats win the White House.

If Harris were elected vice president and left her Senate seat, California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) would appoint a successor to serve the rest of the term that lasts through 2022.

Harris is currently the only Black female senator, which could put pressure on Newsom to ensure that diversity is represented in a potential replacement.
