Governor Brown Appoints Xavier Bacerra Attorney General

Governor Jerry Brown picked House Democratic Caucus Chairman Xavier Becerra (D-Los Angeles), who has served 12 terms in Congress, to be California’s next attorney general. If confirmed by both houses of the Legislature, he will succeed Kamala Harris, who was elected to the U.S. Senate in November.

Becerra earned both his law degree and bachelor's degree from Stanford University. Prior to being elected to the California Assembly and then Congress, Becerra worked in the civil division of the state attorney general's office from 1987 to 1990.

A special election to fill Becerra’s congressional seat will be held sometime in June. John A. Pérez, the former Assembly speaker and current University of California regent, announced his bid for the seat less than an hour after Brown’s announcement.
