Ray Mitchell, 13, son of state Sen. Holly J. Mitchell, D-Los Angeles, fist bumps after she was sworn into office Thursday by Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento. Mitchell was elected to represent California's 26th Senate District last month with 80.6 percent of votes. Mitchell shared a story about standing on the same spot with her son when he was 3 weeks old during a visit to the Capitol.
