The rest of the Democratic controls in the Senate are occupied by Patty Murray, who will be the ‘number two’ of the party in this chamber, Dick Durbin, as in charge of monitoring party discipline; and Debbie Stabenow, as chair of the Democratic committee.

This will be the first time that Schumer will have an absolute majority after in previous years, the Democrats had to resort to the casting vote of the Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris, in her capacity as president of the Senate, to break the tie at 50 seats. in which various laws fell.
