Joe Donnelly will be sworn into office on January 4th in Washington.
Wednesday night, he attended the Swearing in Ceremony for Democrats at the County City Building in South Bend.
St. Joseph county prosecutor michael Dvorak, County Clerk Rita Glenn, and county Councilman Kevin Kubsch were just a few of the people taking the oath of office. "I felt very fortunate to be caught up in your hard efforts, and your good works, and to be carried along with you to victory, here in St. Joseph County," Donnelly said.
"This is a solemn moment, but a moment of great celebration as we welcome these new office holders, and re-elected office holders, and i offer my congratulations to each and every one of you," South Bend Mayor, Steve Luecke stated.
