United States Senator Katie Boyd Britt (R-AL) took her oath of office on the Senate floor Tuesday shortly after the 118th Congress convened. U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), as Alabama’s new senior senator, escorted Senator Britt to Vice President Kamala Harris’ office, who administered the oath as the Senate’s presiding officer. Members of Senator-elect Britt’s family will witness the swearing-in from the Senate gallery.

“It was a humbling moment to take the oath of office today on the Senate floor,” said Senator Katie Britt. “I am truly grateful to the people of Alabama for their trust, confidence, and prayers. Now, it’s time to get to work to fight for our people, our liberties, and our values. It will be my mission every day in the Senate to be a leader who looks to identify and implement tangible, meaningful solutions to the serious challenges and opportunities facing both Alabama and America, so hardworking families can thrive in strong communities. Looking up to the gallery from the Senate floor today and seeing my two children smiling down at me reminded me what this is all about – preserving the American dream for generations to come.”
