WATCH, LIVE: Ron Barber Swearing In At Capitol

UPDATE (10:51a.m., Arizona Time):  Speaker John Boehner has taken the podium, presumably to handle the swearing-in.

UPDATE (11:16a.m., Arizona Time): Swearing in went smoothly, Barber given one minute to speak, spoke for about 5.  Thanks House for "amazing welcome", "amazing family".  To Giffords: "Southern Arizona misses you dearly, and we cannot wait to welcome you home."

The House of Representatives is about to swear in Arizona's newest member.  Ron Barber (D-CD8) won the Special Election last week to replace retired Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
