HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Election season has came and passed and Tuesday is the day set to swear in the new group of lawmakers as they begin their new terms in office.

The swearing-in ceremony comes with some controversy, however, with Senate Republicans fighting back over the election of Jim Brewster (D-Allegheny), arguing that there were several mail-in ballots that were not dated and should not count. If a court rules that these ballots cannot count, Brewster will lose the election to his Republican opponent. Brewster’s swearing-in will be delayed until a court ruling can be given on the matter.
