Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kamala Devi Harris (born October 20, 1964) is an American attorney, author, politician, and the current District Attorney of San Francisco. She was first elected in 2003, defeating incumbent district attorney Terence Hallinan, and was re-elected in 2007. In the 2010 election cycle, she was a candidate for California Attorney General in the 2010 California state elections. As of November 17, 2010, Harris led her opponent, Steve Cooley, by about 30,000 votes out of 8,350,000, with over 760,000 votes left to process. The race is yet to be called for either candidate and is still considered too close to call. If she managed to win, she would be the first woman and first black, as well as holding the distinction of being the first Asian-American attorney general in California and the first Indian American attorney general in the United States of America owing to her Indian descent.show more
