It started with a tweet from Dr. Jill Biden, wife of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
"Hey (Douglas Emhoff). Are you ready?" she asked.
This wasn't a random question: Emhoff is the husband of presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee and U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris.
"Ready to work! Let's go (Dr. Jill Biden)!" he wrote back.
While Harris has spent time in the national spotlight before, such as during her questioning of U.S. Supreme Court nominee (and later Justice) Brett Kavanaugh or her own run for president in 2019, Emhoff, an attorney, has held a much less high-profile position.
So who is Douglas Emhoff?
HE MARRIED HARRIS IN 2014
Emhoff and Harris got married in a Santa Barbara courthouse in 2014, when Harris was California's attorney general. Harris' sister, Maya, officiated over the wedding, which followed a five-month engagement, according to Sacramento Bee reporting at the time.
HE'S AN ENTERTAINMENT ATTORNEY
Emhoff is a partner at the firm DLA Piper, where he works based out of Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
