Harris to give up Senate seat on Monday - report

United States Vice President-elect Kamal Harris will resign from her Senate seat on Monday, two days before her inauguration, The Hill reported on Sunday citing Harris aides.

"She's notified Governor Newsom and has sent her formal indication that she will be resigning on Monday, January 18. And then she will make a formal announcement on Monday," an unnamed aide stated.

Earlier, California Governor Gavin Newsom said he picked California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to take Harris' Senate seat after she assumes her vice presidential role. Since Harris became a US senator after the 2016 election, Padilla will be up for reelection in 2022.
