REPORT: Rick Scott belatedly sworn in as Florida senator
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) was sworn in on Tuesday, days after the rest of his freshman colleagues joined the Senate.
Scott was sworn in by Vice President Pence on the Senate floor. The two will also participate in a ceremonial swearing in the old Senate chamber.
The article goes on to state the following:
Most new senators were sworn in on Thursday, but Scott’s team announced last month that he would delay his swearing in until Jan. 8, allowing him to remain on as Florida’s governor until the end of his term.
The belated swearing-in will make Scott the most junior of the incoming freshman senators.
Scott is succeeding Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, whom he defeated late last year after a protracted vote recount and allegations of voter fraud.
