California Attorney General Kamala Harris is engaged to marry a Los Angeles lawyer, her spokesman said Monday.
Harris fiancé, Douglas Emhoff, is partner in charge of the law firm Venable LLPs Los Angeles office. The two were engaged March 27, said David Beltran, Harris communications director.
Harris, a former San Francisco district attorney, is a rising star in the Democratic Party and is widely considered a potential future candidate for governor or U.S. Senate. She and Emhoff are both 49.
Gov. Jerry Brown was 67 when he married Anne Gust in 2005. He went on to win election in 2006 to the post Harris now holds, before winning the governors race in 2010.
Harris told the San Francisco Chronicle on Sunday that Emhoff proposed on one knee at her San Francisco apartment.
No wedding date has been set, but it will probably be within six months, Harris told the newspaper. She said she and Emhoff had been dating for about a year.
BY THE NUMBERS
Californians carried the nations fourth-highest state and local tax burden in 2011, the Tax Foundation says in a new report, largely because its personal incomes are markedly lower than those of other high-tax states. Californias tax burden was 11.4 percent of its average per capita income of $45,354, or $5,136. New York was the highest at 12.6 percent, followed by New Jersey at 12.3 percent and Connecticut at 11.9 percent. Wyoming residents had the lowest tax burden, 6.9 percent, and the national average was 9.8 percent.
