1. Push in of Senator Mitch McMcConnell with newly elected Republican Senators
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Sen. Mitch McConnell, Majority Leader:
"Good morning, everyone. I've been through a few of these over the years. It's a lot better to have a big freshman class than not. And so we're here this morning to welcome our six new Republican Senators who have allowed us to continue our majority and we'll be heading across the way here shortly to elect the leadership team for the next two years."
3. UPSOUND: Reporter, off camera:
"Governor Scott, do you still contend that there is fraud going on in Florida with this recount?"
Rick Scott is Florida's Republican governor, not a senator-elect.
Yet there he was at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's left shoulder Wednesday when the Kentucky Republican welcomed GOP senators who will take their seats in January when the new Congress is sworn in.
At a brief photo opp, McConnell welcomed what he said were the "six new Republican Senators who have allowed" his party to keep the majority.
Scott holds the narrowest of leads over Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, and the recount is ongoing.
Scott did not reply to a question about whether he contends there was fraud in the election.
President Donald Trump Scott accused elections supervisors in two Florida Democratic counties of fraud without offering evidence. State law enforcement and elections officials have said no fraud complaints have been filed.
