Sen. Kamala Harris
Harris has been making waves in the Democratic Party since she was sworn in as a California senator in 2017. She made history in 2011 by becoming the first woman to serve as the state’s attorney general.
The junior senator serves on the committees for Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, Budget, Intelligence and Judiciary, where she’s grabbed headlines with her tough questioning that highlight her years as a prosecutor.
Harris, it is heavily rumored, will be launching a presidential run in 2019 and has said the country is ready for a female president.
