The day is not far when the name Kamala Harris becomes every household name. Wondering why? Well, she is a fast-rising politician who is winning millions of American’s heart. Kamala is also a part of the increasingly resilient rumors of a possible run for the presidency in 2020.
The fast-rising politician and a lawyer from Oakland was appointed as the junior United States Senator from California in 2017. Prior to this position, Kamala was the Attorney General of California. She held an office from 2011 to 2017.
Kamala rose to the fame after she refused to back down when her male contemporaries tried to suppress her. An ever resilient truth-seeker, this Howard University graduate is an aggressively enterprising person. The present presidential rumors about the Senator have illuminated the light on her husband to find out what kind of person the possible debut First Man of U.S is.
Who Is Kamala Harris Married To?
Kamala’s husband is none other than Douglas Emhoff. Since 2006, he has been the managing Westcoast director at Venable LLP as per his LinkedIn page. Yet, in early 2017, he took the bar in Washington D.C and was sworn in on March 10 of the same year. This move of her husband has definitely done nothing to quiet the presidency rumors.
Like his wife, Douglas is the type of person that lets nothing stand in his way to explain further he is a hot head sort of person. During his early days as a lawyer, in an interview with Law360, he had outrightly accused another lawyer of lying during court proceedings.
Though he still stands by his statement, he does admit that he could have handled it better. Learning from own mistakes is definitely a good trait for any potential first man of the U.S.
Furthermore, in 2015, a report from the L.A. Times revealed that the duo had a combined asset of between $1.5 million to $3 million. Sacramento Bee disclosed their tax return in 2016. It showed that they had paid around $450,000 in State and Federal Income taxes.
Both Emhoff and Harris are big believers in philanthropy. The report also revealed that they had donated approximately $32,947 to charity, with $10,000 of that going to UNICEF.
Additionally, Emhoff always tries to keep his followers on social media up to date with happenings in his family members. He posts regularly about himself, his wife and his kids on a various social media platform.

Harris’s next lover came in the form of Douglas Emhoff. Soon they engaged on April 7, 2014, and tied the knot four months later, on August 22, 2014. The couple met on a blind date, planned by one of her close friends. The two tied knot at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. The Senator’s sister Maya, officiated the marriage.
