That star power and influence in the state of California helped Harris win a seat in the Senate in 2016. She took over former Senator Barbara Boxer’s seat, beating fellow Democrat Loretta Sanchez and getting endorsements from President Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden. She resigned from her seat on Monday.

“Thank you California — it has been an honor serving as your senator for the past four years. Our country has faced many challenges, but I remain certain that our best days are ahead. I promise to keep standing up for our shared values as your Vice President,” she said in a tweet this week.
