Kamala Harris Swears In New Democratic Senators

Vice President Kamala Harris swore in three new senators Wednesday: Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock of Georgia, and Alex Padilla of California. Democrats now have narrow control of the Senate.

“If the Senators-elect and Senator-designate will now present themselves at the desk, the chair will administer the oath of office.” “Mr. Ossoff, Mr. Padilla, Mr. Warnock.” “Please raise your right hand. OK, do you solemnly swear that you will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that you will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that you take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that you will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which you are about to enter so help you God?” Senators: “I do.” “Congratulations.” [applause]
