NBC Bay Area’s Raj Mathai sat down for an exclusive interview with Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris to talk about the massive wildfires, the upcoming election and more.

Harris — an Oakland native and current California senator — was nominated for vice president by Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Aug. 11. She is the first Black and Indian-American woman to be a vice presidential candidate.

“In this election, we have a chance to change the course of history,” Harris said during the third night of the virtual Democratic National Convention. “We’re all in this fight.”

Here’s a look at her ties to the Bay Area and how some people reacted to the historic selection.
