Kamala Harris’ swearing-in could open up a major opportunity for LGBT+ representation in the US Senate
With Kamala Harris set to become vice president, there could be a vital opportunity to bolster LGBT+ representation in the US Senate.
Harris has represented California in the United States Senate since 2016, but is set to give up her seat in the chamber on January 20 as she assumes office as Joe Biden’s second-in-command.
Under the rules of the chamber, it will be up to Governor of California Gavin Newsom to appoint an interim senator to fill the seat temporarily, serving until a special election can be held to elect a full-time replacement for Kamala Harris.
