Tunney of California, 1972-1973; adjunct professor, Georgetown University Law Center, Washington, D.C., 1974-1975; chief counsel and staff director, United States Senate Judiciary subcommittee on constitutional rights, 1975-1977; deputy secretary to the cabinet, The White House, 1977-1978; particular counsel, Department of Defense, 1979; elected as a Democrat to the One Hundred Third and to the two succeeding Congresses (January 3, 1993-January 3, 1999); was not a candidate for reelection to One Hundred Sixth Congress in 1998, but was an unsuccessful candidate for nomination as governor of California; elected as a Democrat to the One Hundred Seventh and to the five succeeding Congresses until her resignation on February 28, 2011 (January 3, 2001-February 28, 2011).
She’s a member of the Democratic Party. She resigned from Congress in February 2011 to end up being the President and CEO of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. She succeeded former Congressman Lee Hamilton and is the very first woman to head the 45 year old “living memorial” to America’s 28th President.
Harman was elected to Congress in 1992 and became the first Smith College grad to be elected to Congress. From 1993 to 1999, Harman represented the 36th, serving in the 103rd, 104th, and 105th Congresses. In 1994, she barely survived reelection in a heavily Republican year, winning by 811 votes. Harman didn’t run for the 106th United States Congress in 1998, instead entering the 1998 California gubernatorial race. It was during that race that she was called “the top Republican in the Democratic Party”. Harman won her old seat in 2000, and was easily reelected in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, and 2010. She made numerous congressional fact-finding missions to hotspots round the world, including North Korea, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and Guantanamo Bay. During her long public career, Harman has been recognized as a national specialist in the nexus of security and public policy dilemmas. She received the Defense Department Medal for Eminent Service in 1998, the CIA Agency Seal Medal in 2007, and also the CIA Director’s Award and the Director of National Intelligence Distinguished Public Service Medal in 2011.
