Senate women ready for their close-up
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- With the midterm elections over and a new congress set to take control, it's time for a slew of official congressional photo-ops.

Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Maryland, the so-called Dean of the women of the U.S. Senate, will pose on Tuesday with the 13 other incumbent women senators, as well with two new additions -- Senators-elect Amy Klobuchar, D-Minnesota, and Claire McCaskill, D-Missouri. The 16 women make up the largest group of female senators in the history of the legislative body.

The photo-op comes on the heels of one held Monday with Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and seven incoming senate Democrats -- plus Independent Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

With a pack of new lawmakers set to descend on Capitol Hill, more photo-ops are sure to come in the coming weeks.
