On Tuesday, California elected state Attorney General Kamala Harris to represent it in the U.S. Senate. Harris is the first new senator for the state in 24 years—the first black politician to represent the state—and only the second black woman elected to the U.S. Senate.
There is not a lot of joy this election season. Everyone knows that we probably won’t live to see another ridiculously upbeat campaign season like 2008, when it was literally "cool" to go out and vote for then-Sen. Barack Obama, but 2016 has been an emotional letdown nonetheless.
