Minnesota's Amy Klobuchar has been helping plan the inauguration with her Republican counterpart, Senator Roy Blunt, from Missouri. "We were doing this before we even knew who won. We didn't know who was going to win, but we wanted to make sure it was bipartisan," she told us.

The pandemic meant some changes to the traditional event. But the program will go on, despite the riots from two weeks ago at the Capitol.

"Our focus remains the same. We make this a special moment, this peaceful transfer of power. No matter what happened. You'll still see the spray paint on the bottom of the columns. You're going to see evidence of what happened. But guess what. We pick ourselves up and democracy will go forward."

She will also be speaking at 10:15am on Inauguration Day. 

WDIO will have live coverage of the event starting on Good Morning America.
