Kamala Harris to the vice presidency next year has kicked off widespread speculation about who might replace her if Democrats seize the White House. California Gov. Gavin Newsom is already being lobbied by hopefuls and numerous names are emerging in the early speculation. Rep.

CA Representative for the 45th district, Katie Porter, joins Pat Thurston Thursday to discuss the latest on the COVID Relief Bill.
