One-year-old Rider Murphy raises his hand like his dad, U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) (left) as he participated in a reenacted swearing-in with his wife Catherine Murphy, and U.S. Vice President Joe Biden. The ceremonial event took place in the Old Senate Chamber inside the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington D.C. on January 3, 2013. The official swearing-in ceremony happened earlier in the Senate chambers on the opening day of the 113th Congress. The 39-year-old Murphy will be the youngest member of the Senate.
