Booker, 44, was sworn in at noon by Vice President Biden. With his arrival, the Senate Democratic caucus now includes 55 senators — 53 Democrats and two independents — and Republicans have 45 seats. Take a look at history:

Today's Quickie:

Since this is from Roll Call, which is subscription only, this is all we get:

The top Democrat on the Rules Committee called Friday for further scrutiny into two Republicans who took part in official House business without being sworn in.

I'm sure the GOP members will get right on that, being that they're so into the U.S. Constitution and all.

That was today's Quickie. Was it good for you?
