The two women are also former prosecutors.
News that Harris will be sworn in on January 20 was first reported by ABC News.
Biden – who was sworn in by Sotomayor for his second term as vice president – chose the theme “America United” for the inauguration and will participate in several events alongside former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
“In a time of unprecedented crisis and deep divisions, America United reflects the beginning of a new national journey that restores the soul of America, brings the country closer together and paves the way for a better future”…
