Fetterman's Absence Causes VP Harris to Cast Senate Tiebreakers
(Washington, DC) -- Vice President Kamala Harris has returned to the Senate to cast deciding votes at least three times this week. The vice president's tiebreakers were related to judicial appointments. Her serving as president pro temp was needed due to the on-going absence of both Senators John Fetterman from Pennsylvania and Dianne Feinstein from California. Fetterman, who is still recovering from a stroke last year, was hospitalized two weeks ago for clinical depression and may be absent for several weeks. The 94-year-old Feinstein had been hospitalized with shingles.
