Kamala Harris Not Interested in a U.S. Supreme Court Nomination

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, February 17, 2016

California Attorney General Kamala Harris today threw cold water on speculation that she may be on President Obama’s short list for nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. Harris said — point blank — she only wants to run for the U.S. Senate.

During a campaign stop at SEIU Local 521 headquarters in San Jose Tuesday morning, Harris stressed she had no interest in being nominated by President Obama for the U.S. Supreme Court after the sudden and unexpected death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

“I’m not putting my name in for consideration, I do not wish to be considered, I’m running for United States Senate,” said Harris.

This past weekend, Harris’ name started circulating at warp speed after former Obama White House adviser David Axelrod mentioned her on a news show discussing Scalia’s potential replacement.
