While the majority of Americans are displeased with the work of Congress, we can be proud of one thing today—we’ve sworn in our first openly gay senator. Tammy Baldwin was sworn as the junior senator from Wisconsin after winning the November 6 election. “I’m very aware that I will have the honor to be the first woman senator from Wisconsin,” Baldwin said in her acceptance speech on election night. “And I’m well aware that I will be the first openly gay member of the United States Senate.”
