  • Senate Transforms With Arrival Of 2 New Democrats

With Tina smith headed to D.C., the next order of business in Minnesota will be for the courts to sort out if her successor, Michelle Fischbach, will be able to hang on to her state Senate seat while serving as the next lieutenant governor.

Doug Jones, the first Alabama Democrat elected to the Senate in a quarter century, is one of two new members slated to take the oath of office on the Senate floor at noon. But they fell short in their effort to repeal former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare program, after three Senate Republicans rejected the bill. Al Franken. He resigned after a series of sexual harassment accusations.

TINA SMITH: You know, sometimes I think people in politics are always looking for the next job and the next opportunity. Smith has already said she will run in a special election this November to claim the seat in her own right.

Smith's family joined her for the ceremony, along with Minnesotan and former Vice President Walter Mondale.

The number of women now serving in the US Senate reached a new high of 22 on Wednesday.

Minnesota GOP Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan added: "Minnesotans will be watching closely to see if Smith can attempt to govern in a bipartisan fashion, or if she will continue on as the consummate Democrat Party insider".

Michele Bachmann, a Republican and former member of the House, told The Jim Bakker Show on December 27 that she was also considering a run for Franken's seat, according to The Hill.

Smith, who once served as vice president of public policy for Planned Parenthood, supports pro-choice policies. "She tries to surround him with a diverse range of voices and opinions, allowing him to draw conclusions and make decisions". Public Record Media's latest report says: "Four months after Amazon announced plans to build a second corporate headquarters - setting off a nationwide competition - Minnesota has concealed its Amazon bid through the use of a nonprofit whose board includes representatives of numerous state's top companies". Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) announced he'd retire after four decades in the Senate, opening the door for Mitt Romney, who had publicly mulled the idea of running for the seat. The Collective PAC, a group that advocates for black candidates, also endorsed Jones.
