President Barack Obama's fellow Democrats welcomed a new colleague to the U.S. Senate on Thursday, newly elected Cory Booker, and the additional vote Booker gives them in the Senate. Vice President Joe Biden administered the oath to Booker, 44, elected this month as the first black senator from New Jersey. He resigned this week as mayor of Newark, the state's largest city. Booker joined Tim Scott of South Carolina as the nation's only two black senators.
