Episode notes

Kamala Harris is elected to the Senate the same night that Donald Trump is elected president. The victory speech she’d planned suddenly becomes useless. Instead, she pledges to fight, and quickly becomes one of the most consistently progressive voices in the Senate and a fierce questioner of Jeff Sessions, Brett Kavanaugh and others. Reported by Joe Garofoli and Tal Kopan.
