HARRIS SWEARS IN NEW SENATORS OSSOFF, WARNOCK, & PADILLA: Vice President Kamala Harris swears in Georgia’s Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock and California’s Alex Padilla as the newest members of the United States Senate. Ossoff and Warnock won their runoff races earlier this month to flip both Senate seats in the Peach State blue for the first time in nearly two decades. Notable is also that Harris, the first Black vice president, will swear in Warnock, Georgia’s first Black senator. Padilla, California’s former secretary of State, was tapped by Gov. Gavin Newsom to fill Harris’ own Senate seat. He is the first Latinx senator from California and will finish out the final two years of Harris’ term. The Senate now will be split 50-50 between Democrats and Republicans, and Harris will serve as the tie-breaking vote.
