Vice President Joe Biden will swear in Sen.-elect Cory Booker (D) next Thursday, a White House official confirmed to TPM.

Booker, the former mayor of Newark, will take the oath of office administered by Biden at noon.

Booker won the special election for deceased Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s (D-NJ) Senate seat roughly two weeks earlier. Booker replaces interim Sen. Jeff Chiesa (R-NJ), who was appointed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) to fill Lautenberg’s seat in June after Lautenberg’s death.

The Newark Star-Ledger first reported the news of Booker’s swearing in.
