Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

Padilla will be the first Latino senator from California, where about 40 per cent of residents are Hispanic.

The Senate is not scheduled to reconvene until Tuesday (local time), the eve of inauguration day. The move comes two days before she's inaugurated on Wednesday, making history as the first female, first Black and first South Asian vice president.

Fans will be in attendance for WWE WrestleMania 37 in Tampa, Florida
WrestleMania 37 is official for Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, and will be a two-day event just like WrestleMania 36. WWE will hold WrestleMania 37 on April 10th and 11th at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

Harris was elected to the Senate in 2016 after spending the previous five years serving as California's attorney general.

Among many potential successors to Ms Harris, Mr Newsom passed over at least two prominent black women, United States representatives Karen Bass and Barbara Lee. The attack led to a temporary rise in the polls for Harris, but was later deflated by fellow Democratic candidate and Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who accused Harris of putting people in jail for minor drug offences while "laughing" after being "asked if she ever smoked marijuana", of blocking evidence to free an innocent man from death row, and of using California's prison system as a source of cheap labour.

She announced her White House bid in January 2019 but dropped out the subsequent December after a lacklustre campaign and before the ballots were cast in the state of Iowa's first-in-the-nation caucuses.
