Rep. Katie Porter is open to filling Kamala Harris' Senate seat if Harris becomes veep

Rep. Katie Porter of Irvine says she’s grateful to hear her name included in talks about who Gov. Gavin Newsom might appoint to fill Kamala Harris’ Senate seat if Harris is elected vice president in November.

And Porter said Friday that she’s definitely open to the idea of moving from the House to the Senate. “I can’t imagine saying no to any position in which I could make a real difference in people’s lives.”

The former UC Irvine law professor makes sense for the seat in several ways, according to local experts who are following the process. That’s already creating speculation about who might then run for Porter’s vacated House seat, if Porter wins reelection in November against Mission Viejo Councilman Greg Raths.

But some other factors work against Porter becoming a Senate appointee, which is why Marcia Godwin, a professor of public administration at University of La Verne, puts Porter in the second tier of contenders for the sought-after seat.

5. K&R for two reasons.

Primarily for the post.

Secondarily for the cute kitties in your signature line.
