HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — ‘Better late than never’ is the feeling of a Western Pennsylvania state Senator who was finally sworn-in on Wednesday in Harrisburg at the state Capitol.

Democrat Jim Brewster is from the 45th Senatorial district. His election was challenged by Republican Nicole Ziccarelli.

On Tuesday, a federal court sided with the state Supreme Court in upholding Brewster’s win by a mere 34 votes.

The 72-year-old Brewster is now starting a third 4-year term with the state Senate.

Republicans still control the chamber 29 seats to 21.
