Kelly To Take Senate Oath Of Office On Wednesday

Angela Gervasi

Democrat Mark Kelly is set to take his seat in the U.S. Senate on Wednesday. State officials certified Arizona's election results Monday showing Kelly's victory over Republican Martha McSally. That paves the way for the retired astronaut to take the oath of office. Kelly is taking office more than a month ahead of other senators elected in November because he was chosen in a special election to finish the last Senate term of the late John McCain. The GOP’s Senate majority will fall to 52 members when Kelly replaces McSally, who was appointed to hold McCain's seat until the election.
