Kamala Harris Declares in 3 senators Producing their own history

Just hours after Kamala Harris' very own historic swearing-in as president, she ushered in three other historical firsts as she swore in three new senators.

Harris received a standing ovation as she walked into the Senate for the first time as vice president on Wednesday afternoon.

Seconds later, Harris swore in her successor, Alex Padilla, to take her old Senate seat. Padilla is now California's first Latino senator.

At precisely the exact same time, she also administered the oath of office to Georgia's latest senators, Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.

Ossoff becomes the primary Jewish senator from Georgia and also at 33 is the most adorable Democrat elected to the Senate because Joe Biden was elected in 1972.

The moment Warnock and Ossoff were sworn in also marked the moment Democrats officially took charge of the Senate.

The Georgia Democrats provide the human body a 50-50 split, however, Democrats will maintain control with Harris as the tie-breaking vote.

When Harris resigned from her Senate article on Monday, she wrote in an op-ed for her local paper, The San Francisco Chronicle, that she plans to meet her"constitutional duty" as the tiebreaker, but expects that lawmakers will discover common ground to pass legislation.

"I intend to work tirelessly as your Vice President, for example, if needed, meeting this Constitutional duty," Harris wrote. "At precisely the exact same time, it's my hope that instead of come to the point of a tie, the Senate will rather find common ground and do the work of the American men and women."
