WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
It will be a history-making event Wednesday when the first Black, South Asian and female vice president takes her oath of office from the first Latina justice.
A person familiar with the decision says Harris chose Sotomayor for the task. She’ll also use two Bibles for the swearing-in, one of which belonged to the first Black Supreme Court justice, Thurgood Marshall.
Harris has expressed admiration for both Sotomayor and Marshall.
