Vice President-Elect Harris
The Vice President has two constitutionally established duties: first, to succeed the president if he or she dies, resigns, or is removed, and second, to serve as president of the Senate.
Nine Vice Presidents have become president by succession: John Tyler, Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, Chester Arthur, Theodore Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Harry Truman, Lyndon B Johnson, and Gerald Ford.
As to casting tie-breaking votes in the Senate, Vice President Mike Pence has done so 13 times; Biden never cast a tie-breaking vote. John C. Calhoun set the record for the most tie-breaking votes with 31. [Ballotpedia 12/9/20]
