Wednesday, 03 Feb 2010 05:43 PM

Sen.-elect Scott Brown, the Republican who upset the political world to wrest the longtime Massachusetts Senate seat of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy from the Democrats will be sworn in to office Thursday afternoon.

Brown's swearing-in will give Republicans 41 seats in the upper chamber.

"Once we get his certificate, we expect to swear him in tomorrow afternoon as early as 5 o'clock, which is earlier than he suggested," Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., told TheHill.com Wednesday.
