Harris will sit down with Stephen Colbert on the CBS late-night show on Jan. 10, the network announced Thursday.


Harris is poised to appear the same night as another guest with a political connection. Actor Bradley Whitford — who starred as fictional White House deputy chief of staff Josh Lyman on NBC’s long-running political drama, “The West Wing” — is also booked for next Thursday’s show.

Harris has been floated as a possible 2020 presidential contender in what is likely to be a crowded Democratic field. It won’t be the lawmaker’s inaugural appearance on Colbert’s show — she was also a guest last April.

Last month, a pair of prominent Democrats made headlines with their 2020 announcement on “The Late Show.”
