Burris Cleared to Take Senate Seat The New York Times reports that Senate leaders have cleared the way for Ronald Burris to fill Barack Obama's vacated Senate seat. In a joint statement, Democratic senators Harry Reid and Dick Durbin granted the senator-designate title on Burris. Burris was appointed by Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who's accused of trying to sell that very seat. Reid and Durbin stated: "[B]arring objections from Senate Republicans, we expect Senator-designee Burris to be sworn in and formally seated later this week."0 Comments
