Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday chose California Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate, which would mean an open seat if she becomes vice president.

California's Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom would choose someone to fill the seat until Harris' term runs out in 2022. Should Biden lose, Harris would remain as a senator and likely run for reelection.

Here are some potential Democratic candidates that Newsom may choose for the seat.

Xavier Becerra

Sacramento-born Becerra, 62, took over for Harris as California’s attorney general in 2017. He previously served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1993 to 2017. He is the son of working-class Mexican immigrants and obtained a J.D. from Stanford Law School in 1984.

Alex Padilla

Padilla, 47, has served as California’s Secretary of State since 2015. The Los Angeles native was previously a member of the California State Senate from 2006 to 2014. He is also the son of Mexican immigrants and earned a degree in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1994.

Rep. Katie Porter

Porter began her first term in Congress in 2019, defeating incumbent Republican Mimi Walters in a traditionally conservative district. The 46-year-old law professor is known for her tough questioning of Trump administration officials as a member of the House Committee on Financial Services. Porter, received her undergraduate degree from Yale University and later graduated from Harvard Law School.
