Vice President Harris Breaks 19th Century Record with 32nd Tie-Breaking Senate Vote

Vice President Kamala Harris made history by surpassing a nearly two-century-old Senate record, casting her 32nd tie-breaking vote to advance a new federal judge’s confirmation in Washington, D.C., the Associated Press reports.

The milestone eclipsed the previous record held by John C. Calhoun, spanning from 1825 to 1832, with 31 tie-breaking votes during his vice presidency. Vice President Kamala Harris, a Democrat, initially matched Calhoun’s record in July, solidifying her influential role in the Senate by confirming President Joe Biden’s nominee.
