Franken to be sworn in Tuesday at 12:15 p.m. ET
It's official: the swearing-in ceremony for Senator-elect Al Franken will take place Tuesday at 12:15 p.m. ET. Vice President Biden will administer the oath of office and Franken will be accompanied by former Vice President Walter Mondale and Sen. Amy Klobuchar.
Many stations will be covering the ceremony, but we've confirmed that it will be streamed live on C-SPAN 2 and locally on KSTP. C-SPAN 2 is channel 104 on Twin Cities Comcast. KSTP will also have it live on their site. The UpTake has a reporter in Washington, D.C., but it's unclear if they will have live video of the event. Don't forget to tune in to see it all at 11:15 a.m. Minnesota time.
To prep yourself for the out-of-control excitement likely to unfold, check out Franken's total snoozer press conference this morning with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. We couldn't even finish watching it.
