It is the mayor's job to find a successor to District Attorney Kamala Harris before she takes over as lieutenant governor.

But Mayor Gavin Newsom says he is going to let Harris make that decision.

There is no word yet on who Harris might choose.

She will take the oath of office for attorney general on Jan. 3.
