Cory Booker Swearing-In Set for Oct. 31

Sen.-elect Cory Booker is set to become the most junior senator on Halloween.

The office of Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. confirmed that the New Jersey Democrat will be sworn in at noon on Oct. 31. The mayor of Newark easily prevailed in the Oct. 16 special election to fill out the unexpired term of the late Frank R. Lautenberg, a fellow New Jersey Democrat.

The incoming senator’s chief of staff should be a familiar face to Biden. Booker announced that Louisa Terrell of Facebook would lead his Senate operation. Terrell was a senior aide to the vice president during his days as a senator from Delaware.

Booker will take over from Sen. Jeff Chiesa, R-N.J., the interim senator appointed by GOP Gov. Chris Christie.

The swearing-in will bring to 55 the number of senators caucusing with the Democrats, giving one more vote to Majority Leader Harry Reid as the Nevada Democrat looks to push forward with a fall agenda truncated somewhat by the government shutdown.

No word if anyone will appear in costume, though it wouldn’t even be the first time someone dressed as Biden during official Senate business. Current Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel did just that back in 2007, when both were members of the Foreign Relations Committee.

Nevertheless, coming from everything that I have seen, I simply trust as the remarks pile on that individuals keep on issue and in no way embark on a soap box of the news du jour. Anyway, thank you for this superb piece and while I can not go along with this in totality, I regard your perspective.

    Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
