Inslee Takes Oath Of Office

Washington officially has a new governor. In a ceremony in Olympia Wednesday, Democrat Jay Inslee took the oath of office.

Inslee is Washington’s 23rd governor. The Democrat says he requested to take his oath of office in the capitol rotunda to give more people a chance to witness the ceremony.

Wednesday afternoon, Inslee delivered his inaugural address to a joint assembly of the legislature. Wednesday night, he will celebrate with hundreds of guests at the Inaugural Ball in the marble halls of the state capitol.
