The Senate: it's done

The Senate was called to order, VP Harris announced the submission of two electoral certificates from Georgia and an appointment to replace for her own resignation from California (which she added was a weird thing to say) and swore in the incumbents. Then they formally elected the most senior Democratic senator (Patrick Leahy) as president pro tem to replace the most senior Republican senator, and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) took the floor as majority leader, and began by welcoming his three new colleagues: Senators Warnock, Ossoff, and Padilla.
